About Moroccan Mint Tea

Tea Type : Green Tea

Tea Forté's award-winning Moroccan Mint green tea combines hand-rolled Chinese gunpowder green tea with fresh nana mint leaves. Also known as atay bi nahna, Moroccan Mint Tea, is the national drink of Morocco, and is the traditional tea of Moroccan hospitality. The green tea leaves are rolled to protect the precious oils, and to early traders, these leaves resembled buck-shot, hence the name. Nana mint is a fragrant mint grown only in North Africa. It possesses a distinctive, mint-menthol-like character. This is a favorite tea of hospitality both in Morocco and the Middle East where it is commonly prepared. It is traditionally served in clear glasses sweetened with sugar. It is believed to be a wonderful digestive aid, famous for its anti-heartburn properties. Studies show that green tea aids in detoxifying the body, regulates your blood sugar, and promotes healthy teeth, skin and bones.

Mint herb tea is a quick and easy way to introduce the mint and its healing powers into the body, calming the ailing person and allowing them to have enough relief that he or she can get some rest and begin to heal.

Ingredients and certifications may differ slightly between our pyramid infusers and loose tea canisters for this blend, see package for details.

Steeping instructions

1. Heat water to 175˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.
3. Steep for 2-4 minutes.
4. Enjoy!

For loose leaf iced teas, use 2 tsp per 8oz glass.

    What it is

    This is what it is supposed to be, a bit too much tea only but true to its title.

    As close as I’ve come to the real thing

    I’ve just returned from Morocco, where the tea is always made with the fresh version of Maghrebi spearmint. Unlike most “Moroccan Mint Teas” available in the States, which are made with an excess of peppermint flavoring, this tea is the closest I’ve found to the original. The dried spearmint is as close in flavor to the fresh one as you can expect of a dried herb, and the Gunpowder tea imparts the perfect balance of flavor with a slight bitterness on subsequent rebrewing. Definitely not a candy cane in a cup.

    Very balanced

    Sometimes mint tea can trend toward medicinal, but this blend is very balanced and pleasant. I do wish there was a little more gunpowder to mint ratio, more like what is shown in the photo.

    My go-to tea

    When I need to perk up or sit and digest the day's news, this is the best tea to do that. It is smooth and minty. Don't overdo it though, there is a fair amount of caffeine in it!
