Description: In the last few hours of sunlight on summer evenings, sip on this crisp mint tea beneath the lemon trees and colourful mosaic underfoot. With a green tea base, this blend embodies Tagore’s ode to an age-old Moroccan tradition and hospitality.
Ingredients: Green Tea, Spearmint.
Health Benefits: This minty, cooling tea blend is a refreshing take on the household staple in Morocco. It acts as a powerful antioxidant, promotes skin health and prevents bad breath.
Tasting Notes: Light, fresh aroma of spearmint balanced with a strong and astringent gunpowder green tea. It pairs well with Mediterranean dishes or spicy foods because of its cooling effect and overall digestive comfort after a heavy meal.
Journey: A farm in Sivakasi, Tamil Nadu provides the refreshing and cooling spearmint featured in Arabian Nights. Rich, moist soil from this southernmost region of India produces a clean, light spearmint flavor with an intense aroma. Our spearmint is harvested early morning, once the dew has left the plant, to ensure the preservation of essential oils at their highest concentrations. Gunpowder Green Tea is named for the shape of its leaves. To craft the highest quality gunpowder tea, our tea-makers wither, steam, roll, and dry individual tea leaves tightly rolled into tiny pellets that when steeped unfurl into long, luscious leaves.
