The history of Moroccan mint tea dates back to the XIXth century and the Crimean War. Accustomed to drinking herbal teas comprising concoctions of Nanah mint leaves, the Moroccans discovered Gunpowder green tea known as the "Pearl of China". They naturally decided to blend these two remarkable ingredients. Mint tea is offered and consumed as a sign of hospitality because, according to a Tuareg proverb, "three conditions are needed to make tea: time, embers and friends”. It's perfect for rounding off a meal, but it can also be consumed all day long. Mint tea is traditionally prepared in a typically Moroccan teapot and poured from a considerable height, which allows it to oxygenate and release all of its flavours. The presence of froth on the surface of the tea, also known as "turban" is a sign of a successful infusion. The tea is served three times without changing the leaves. The flavours and appearance of the herbal tea therefore change each time it is served.
