Our Moroccan Mint Green Tea
is a light, delicious house blend of delicate, fruity China gunpowder green tea with organically grown Oregon spearmint. It is excellent both hot and iced. (See our "How to Make Iced Tea"
section.) Use 1/2 tsp per cup and steep 2 min. in steaming water.
Moroccan tea culture is defined by the way tea (exclusively green tea) is prepared and consumed in Morocco, where it is widely consumed with food. The tradition has also spread throughout North Africa, parts of the Sahel, and southern Spain. Tea occupies a very important place in Moroccan culture and is considered an art form. Morocco is one of the biggest tea importers of the world.
Moroccan-style mint tea is now commonly served all through North Africa. It is served not only at mealtimes but all through the day, and it is especially a drink of hospitality, commonly served whenever there are guests. Unlike Moroccan food, cooked by women, this tea is traditionally a man's affair: prepared by the head of the family, it is served to guests, and it is impolite to refuse it. Source: Wikipedia
