While the Brits may have pubs that are a key part of their social life, Moroccans have tea houses. And they almost exclusively serve one kind of tea. Trust us when we say this is a big deal in that part of the world. It starts with a strong tea base of Chinese green gunpowder tea, fresh spearmint leaves, and plenty of sugar. The tea process is actually quite elaborate involving pouring and repouring multiple cups while keeping the tea at a boil. So while we cannot offer the true Moroccan tea experience, we can give you a wonderful blend that would make any Moroccan proud.
Organic Green Tea, Organic Spearmint
Our gunpowder tea comes from the Zhejiang Province in China. The leaves are plucked in late summer allowing them to mature in flavor and give it its characteristic smoky flavor. The leaves are fired for an extended period of time in a hot oven until they become dark green and shiny. The tea is then rolled into little tiny balls that resemble small pellets of gunpowder.
Our spearmint comes from both Oregon and Washington. This region has become popular for their fantastic mint due to the dry desert climate which enhances the flavor and discourages some of the problems humid climates cause the plants. The mint leaves are harvested in July and are cut into rows and are naturally dried in the fields for five days, which keeps a bright green color and fresh flavor.
