Description: A real zap pow of a green tea. If you are looking for lively flavour with added health benefits then you have found it. Mint tea is drunk all over the globe but is renown in Morocco with this type of tea often referred to as Maghrebi mint tea is the customary blend in this North African country. Poured from up high into slim, delicate glasses with lots of sugar, it's served three times to guests. Each time the flavor varies slightly. Per the proverb: "The first glass is as gentle as life, the second is as strong as love, the third is as bitter as death." Refusing any one of these servings is considered the height of rudeness.
Serving Suggestion: Steve enjoys this tea over ice. Adrien enjoys it with a spoonful of sugar. For iced drinks either cold brew overnight or brew as for hot but use more tea leaves to make a more intense flavour.
