December 8th.

What makes a Moroccan mint Moroccan? Is it just green tea with peppermint in it? If so, is this actually a kind of Moroccan mint? It only has green tea and mint.

The aroma is quite minty, although tempered by the green tea. The flavour is very minty, but still tempered. It’s not like drinking plain peppermint, but it does feel a little more like green tea flavoured peppermint rather than the other way around.

I don’t really have a lot else to say on the matter. It’s nice enough, but it’s not at all something mind blowing. I think my lucky streak has broken.

(Go on, post. Show up!)

I think Moroccan mint tea is traditionally gunpowder green tea with mint and served very sweet.

Moroccan tea I guess it not necessarily moroccan or just moroccan, spread over northern africa.

Wikipedia calls it Touareg tea http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Touareg_tea

and explains about the mint being a special variety, nana mint (Which I think is also one of our usual types of mint, though mint varieties is a whole world)

Spices?

I’ve had Middle Eastern friends serve it to me and it’s incredibly sweet and delicious! Went to a place in San Francisco with a Lebanese friend, and you can sit for hour while your mint tea pot is refilled over and over again. There’s tons of sugar and fresh leaves in the pot as well as a big bowl of sugar on the table. (You eat pastries with it)

Gosh, I don’t think I’d like a proper Moroccan mint, then. I can’t abide sweetener in my tea! O.o

If Bonnie happens to remember the name of the place you went to in SF, it sounds like a place I’d like to check out!

Don’t know why it’s sweetened so much but it just is. I understand the hot beverage in a hot climate is for cooling the body so maybe the sugar helps.I dunno.

I think it might just be a cultural tea. I was a guest in a Turkish home once and was given Turkish apple tea in a tulip glass. As a student we were doing group projects, and one of the girls in my group was from Turkey. We wanted to interview some immigrants (by far the most immigrants in Denmark are muslim, the majority of them I believe from Turkey), so we made questionnaires and she then had her uncle take a pile with him to the mosque. He didn’t speak very good Danish, so he invited us over for tea so that she could explain to him what the questions were about. Anyway, her aunt served us traditional Turkish tea in those small tulip glasses and it was explained to us that it was important we sweetened it or it would be undrinkable. They brew it more or less samovar-style with a reeeeeeally strong concentrate which is diluted with hot water. I can’t remember what it tasted like, though. The other girl and I were too busy being on our best behaviour while everybody spoke Foreign around us. :)

Bonnie I was in Turkey and offered a choice of the apple tea or Turkish coffee and opted for the coffee. Oh well.

Sfcafezitouna.com is the Moroccan cafe restaurant in San Francisco I went to with my friend Randa. She used to work for Rafael House Carity down the block. There are 99 photo’s of the food and tea. Very authentic!
