A very simple blend of African honeybush and spearmint produces a cool and refreshing caffeine-free iced tea, with a light-amber infusion. Simply irresistible!! Although it originated in Morocco, mint tea is served all across North Africa. It is believed that green tea was first introduced to Morocco in the 18th century, and began spreading through the country in the mid-19th century at the time the trade between the Maghreb and Europe started flourishing. Mint tea is a drink of hospitality, commonly served to guests.

Luckily, it’s spicy flavor and easily recognized pungent smell are only heightened by the addition of another herb to this blend.
African mint tea is a very simple mix of spearmint and honeybush, which is another of the most common tea-making ingredients.
