What is in our Moroccan Mint tea?

In Morocco it is custom to serve guests mint tea on their arrival. In honour of this tradition, we have combined spearmint and peppermint, and blended them with gunpowder green tea, offering a lively and refreshing taste. The subtle mint tones are perfectly balanced with the bold flavours of gunpowder green tea. It can also be served chilled with a slice of lemon on ice.

Our ingredients for this blend are sourced from Egypt and China – and hand packed with care, by us, in Victoria, Australia. At Love Tea we choose to fairly source the majority of our ingredients directly from the growing communities and cooperatives who produce them. We pay additional premiums for the ingredients grown on fair trade farms like this one, and we are continually learning how we can have a more meaningful and positive impact on the lives of growers and their families at origin. Our goal is to have every relevant component in our supply chain sourced as a fair trade minimum.

What are the health benefits of drinking Moroccan Mint tea?

Peppermint has traditionally been used to treat a wide range of ailments including nausea, indigestion and bloating. Sourced directly from a cooperative in Egypt, this tea has a refreshing, delicate and cooling flavour. We have blended this peppermint tea with our antioxidant rich gunpowder green tea and spearmint.

 

Will Moroccan Mint tea help settle an upset stomach?

For many people, mint tea offers support in reducing digestive complaints, and soothing an upset stomach. It can be enjoyed before or after a meal to aid the digestive process, while also helping us stay hydrated.

How do you brew Moroccan Mint tea?

Loose leaf

Place a heaped teaspoon (2.5 grams) of tea per cup (250ml) into a teapot or infuser. Add filtered water at 75ºc–85ºc and allow to infuse for 3–4 minutes. Strain the tea and serve.

Pyramid tea bags

Place one tea bag per cup (250ml) into a cup, teapot or infuser. Add filtered water at 75ºc–85ºc and allow to infuse for 3–4 minutes. Strain the tea and serve.

 

Does Moroccan Mint contain caffeine?

Yes, Moroccan Mint does contain some caffeine from the green tea, however this blend has less caffeine than a traditional green tea, as it is blended with peppermint and spearmint.

What is our packaging made from?

The clear pouch that holds our Moroccan Mint is not made from plastic. It is made from a renewable plant-based cellophane, which can also easily be home composted and will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

The cardboard is made from post-consumer recycled board, is printed with vegetable-based inks and can also be home composted after use where it will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

Our pyramid tea bags are also not made from plastic. They are made from a biodegradable, non-GMO, plant-based material called Soilon, which meets all compostability standards in Japan, North America and Europe. However it is important to note, they will definitely take longer than other compost items to decompose. The material manufacturers recommend commercial composting as a quicker alternative to address this longer time of breakdown.

If you are looking for the most environmentally friendly option, we will always recommend drinking loose leaf tea.
