African Mint

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.

The Herb That Cannot Be Vanquished

Mint: not only something to brush your teeth with or adorn the tea tables of old ladies playing bridge. This delicious Old World herb has a myriad of uses in cuisine, herbology and medicine, and popular mythology.
