Nationally treasured, loved worldwide, Moroccan Mint is a symbol of hospitality in the Arabic world.
Perhaps surprisingly, Morocco is one of the largest importers of Chinese green tea in the world. The huge quantity of Gunpowder green tea is used to create the famous Moroccan mint tea, also known as Maghrebi tea. Any time spent in Morocco is incomplete without sampling this popular infusion which has been a symbol of hospitality for hundreds of years.
Anyone who visited our Tea Bar knows that we put great emphasis on brewing teas in such a way that it does not become bitter. While traditional Moroccan tea is boiled for around 15 minutes, we take the Asian approach we infuse the leaves with 80-degree water for no more than 3 minutes. Thus the infusion is soft, refreshing and naturally sweet.
Benefits of drinking mint tea
More than a cultural sign of hospitality, mint teas are enjoyed around the world for their refreshing flavor and soothing benefits. Regardless of which type you choose, mint is particularly good for boosting digestion and easing muscle pains that contribute to indigestion. Due to the fact it contains menthol, a common decongestant, it is the perfect brew if you have a cold and are feeling under the weather.
