A CLASSIC BLEND
Known as atay bi nahna, Moroccan Mint tea is the national drink of Morocco, as well as a widely-recognized icon of North African and Middle Eastern hospitality. In Tea Forté's carefully curated blend, cooling spearmint is blended with gunpowder green tea leaves, which are rolled to protect their precious oils. To early traders, these rolled leaves resembled buckshot and were nicknamed after their gunpowder-like appearance.
In Morocco, this tea is traditionally blended with nana mint, a fragrant spearmint varietal grown only in North Africa possessing a distinctive menthol fragrance and flavor. Commonly sweetened with sugar and served in small, clear glasses, this hot beverage has the unique distinction of having both a warming and cooling effect on those who drink it.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF GREEN TEA WITH MINT
Green tea is known for its bounty of antioxidants and L-theanine, a compound that takes the edge off of its caffeine content, resulting in a slight energy boost without the jarring sensation caffeine can otherwise bring. Mint is often served to calm an ailing digestive system, and when paired with organic green tea leaves, its health-forward properties are as evident as the refreshment it delivers.
Moroccan Mint tea makes an excellent iced tea. For loose leaf iced tea, use 3 tsp per 8oz glass.
