Origin: Blended at Westholme
Ingredients: Peppermint, Gunpowder Green Tea
Description: Tea was introduced to Morocco by the British and the Dutch in the eighteenth century. Initially, the beverage was reserved for the wealthy upper classes, but by the nineteenth century the consumption of the drink had expanded to reach the palates of even the country’s poorest. Many people in Morocco now consume tea several times a day, and offering tea to guests is an important symbol of Moroccan hospitality. This beautiful North African country is now the largest importer of Chinese green tea in the world. Our Morocco blend is a classic mix of green gunpowder tea and peppermint.
Tasting Notes: A refreshing afternoon tea, with a lovely bite of green astringency, and warm peppermint to wake the palate and comfort the senses. The balance of these two flavours is bold and revitalizing. Enjoy hot or cold.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 95ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
