Louise our tea taster says:
"Whilst haggling in the souks of Morocco, we discovered tea with mint and sugar - lots and lots of sugar! The lovely people of Morocco have their tea super sweet, this is partly because the Gunpowder Green tea they use can sometime be a little harsh – the sweetness melts that away. After a bit of trial and error, we opted for a green tea called Chunmee or as we prefer Precious Eyebrows, which is a more delicate tea. Better to change the base tea than your teeth, we reckon!"
how does it taste?
A delicate green tea known as "precious eyebrows" blended with peppermint leaves for that traditional Moroccan experience.
good if you're feeling
Rough on the inside and even worse on the outside; green tea and mint are a great cure-all.
how we like it
Authentic - brew up, add a little sugar, grab your hallway carpet and flog it to the people at the bus stop.
Iced - just cover one tea temple with boiling water and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and fill glass with iced water. Spoon in some sugar.
- 1 tea temple per person. brew for 3+ minutes, best with water at 80 degrees C. (If you don't have a fancy kettle or thermometer to hand, grabbing the kettle just before it boils will do the trick!)
Whole leaves take longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it.
