The Hē Chá Tea Spotlight today will focus on our Moroccan Mint Green Tea.
Our Moroccan Mint Green Tea is a simple, yet perfectly measured blend of organic U.S. grown Peppermint leaves and organic Chinese Gunpowder Green Tea. The green tea is imported from the Jiangxi Province of southeast China. There is no flavoring or scenting of the tea leaves, aside from any scent they may acquire after being blended with peppermint leaves. This is a clean, natural, organic blend.
Our Moroccan Mint Green Tea provides a truly refreshing experience. The experience begins with the scent of fresh peppermint dancing with the lightly smokey aroma of the Gunpowder green tea. As the hot water is poured over the green tea leaves, sit back and watch the rolled leaves unwind, releasing all of the attractive scents, tastes, and benefits that green tea is known for. The taste can be described in one word, Refreshing!
Whether this tea is being enjoyed hot on a cold winter evening, or chilled with ice on a hot summer afternoon, it is sure to satisfy your thirst and hydrate your body. Are you in doubt that this tea can be refreshing on hot days? Ask someone from the country of Morocco for their opinion. Moroccan Mint tea is served from morning to evening in Morocco, and is often the first beverage offered to guests by a host. Inside and outside of Morocco, this blend of green tea and peppermint is the most popular green tea and herb blend on the planet. Try it yourself! We are confident that you will understand why it is so popular.
We suggest that our Moroccan Mint Green Tea be brewed using water that is heated to about 175°F (80°C). Use one teaspoon (3 grams) of dry leaves for every 8 ounces (225 ml) of water in your mug or teapot. Most mugs should have two teaspoons of dry leaves used, since there is between 14 to 16 ounces (400 to 450 ml) of water held in a mug. Pour the water over the leaves, and allow to brew for one to two minutes, depending on your taste preference. Do not allow the leaves to brew in the water for more than two minutes, or else the taste may become bitter. Our Moroccan Mint Green Tea leaves can be reused at least three times in a 24 hour period. One ounce of leaves can provide up to 30 cups of great tasting tea!
For green tea to taste as it should, and not be bitter, the water temperature and infusion time are very important. If you do not have a water thermometer or an electric kettle with temperature controls, simply boil water in a standard kettle. Once the water is boiling, remove the kettle from the heat, and allow the water to cool for 3 to 4 minutes before pouring it on the tea leaves.
As with all teas, our Moroccan Mint Green Tea does contain caffeine, but not as high of a level as most black teas, and nowhere near the caffeine level of coffee. If you are caffeine sensitive, you may use this simple at home technique to remove some of the caffeine from this tea. Simply pour the hot water over the tea leaves for about twenty seconds, using just enough water to cover the leaves, then pour this first tea infusion into the sink. Much of the caffeine is withdrawn from the leaves in the first twenty seconds. Again, this technique will not pull all of the caffeine out. Then pour the hot water over the tea leaves as directed in the paragraph above. Don’t worry, there is plenty of taste in these leaves, and disposing of the first infusion will not waste the taste.
