Tea Forté's award-winning Moroccan Mint green tea combines hand-rolled Chinese gunpowder green tea with fresh nana mint leaves. Also known as atay bi nahna, Moroccan Mint Tea, is the national drink of Morocco, and is the traditional tea of Moroccan hospitality. The green tea leaves are rolled to protect the precious oils, and to early traders, these leaves resembled buck-shot, hence the name. Nana mint is a fragrant mint grown only in North Africa. It possesses a distinctive, mint-menthol-like character. This is a favourite tea of hospitality both in Morocco and the Middle East where it is commonly prepared. It is traditionally served in clear glasses sweetened with sugar. It is believed to be a wonderful digestive aid, famous for its anti-heartburn properties. Studies show that green tea aids in detoxifying the body, regulates your blood sugar, and promotes healthy teeth, skin and bones.
Mint herb tea is a quick and easy way to introduce the mint and its healing powers into the body, calming the ailing person and allowing them to have enough relief that he or she can get some rest and begin to heal.
