North African countries have used mint in their cooking and drinks for many years. When Europeans first brought tea to the regions (in exchange for prisoners), they naturally blended it with mint. The tea at the time would have been green and manufactured as a “Gunpowder” Tea. This tea is an exact replica of the teas still drunk in Morocco. For some real authenticity drink from a glass teacup and add a few fresh mint leaves.
Brew with freshly drawn boiled water that has cooled for 2 minutes, for 3-5 minutes.
