Islam may prohibit alcohol, but certainly not tea… Organic Moroccan Mint tea, which Moroccans jokingly refer to as “Moroccan Whisky” is a national icon for warm hospitality (as tea is in most countries). It is prepared using Chinese Gunpowder green tea, fresh mint, and a lot of sugar. The key to serving it is to pour each cup from a high elevation so you get a nice head of foam at the top of the cup. Our Moroccan Whisky blends organic gunpowder tea with two different types of dry mint, so you can still get a fresh minty taste even if you can’t get your hands on fresh mint. And if you can… No problem! It’ll be just be twice as good!
Preparation: 4 spoons of Moroccan Whisky Mix for a Moroccan teapot, 6 spoons of sugar (8-10 would be more traditional), a branch of mint and boiling water. Let it sit for 5 minutes before stirring, then serve from some height to achieve foam. Traditionally one serves a cup and puts it back into the teapot 3 times before finally serving guests.
