Took my back to my time in Morocco but without the lashings of sugar, which detracted from the flavour, this tea is a really pleasant way to round off a meal in the evening. I will definitely be back for more.
I grew with a strong northern african influence in drinks and food. My family often cooked Moroccan food and of course the traditional mint tea was was served daily. I haven't tried it the proper Moroccan style with honey or sugar but the taste and smell really takes me back.
Lovely flavour that offers a true Moroccan experience
Love the mix of different mints
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!

If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
