The Business of Blends
One area we have been diving into more at The Tea Table is the craft of blends. While we have always offered our own flavored blends, in the last couple years we have ventured further into unflavored ones.
Moroccan Mint Tea
Moroccan Mint Tea is a blend of China gunpowder green tea with spearmint. Good hot or for iced tea. (See our "How to Make Iced Tea" section.) Use 1/2 tsp per cup and steep 1 min. in near boiling 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.

This is a very nice tea. This is my after work tea, Very relaxing. Would re-order this.
Huge disappointment! Despite being very light on mint notes, even the tea flavor does not shine through. Metallic finish. Thought the issue was with the recommended brew time of 1 minute, but increasing to 2 minutes did not help. Would not buy again. Hard to say it, but recommend Stash over this blend.

Very delicious and relaxing. The gunpowder tea is perfect with the mint. I also agree about the tiny particles that make it through the mesh strainer but they don't bother me very much [not enough to notice them at least] Definitely recommended
