Fans of spearmint will love this life-giving tea made from Chinese gunpowder green tea and Moroccan mint leaves. Ideal for nursing a light cold or calming an unsettled stomach, or for simply enjoying a soothing, menthol-infused beverage, Moroccan Mint tea is an essential addition to any tea lover’s cabinet.
The prime ingredient is Chinese gunpowder green tea, harvested in Zhejiang, one of China’s largest tea-producing provinces. These leaves are rolled to preserve the special oils within, giving them a bullet-like shape. When 19th century merchants first saw the tea, they confused it with gunpowder, hence its explosive name.
Adding a minty, fresh kick are leaves of Nana mint tea, the national drink of Morocco. There, it is often served in tea bars to encourage social activity, serving a similar role as alcoholic beverages in western countries. Here it lends a fresh, spearmint flavor, and also acts as a tea for digestion and anti-heartburn medicine.
Moroccan Green is presented in boxes of 6 or 48 silken infusers. Each specially crafted teabag is designed to unfurl the tealeaves and release flavors into the water during the steeping process. They’re made from gluten-free, recyclable fibers, and have a refined, pyramid-like shape suggestive of the exotic and sophisticated tea hidden within.
