British weather getting you down?

We've blended our smoky Gunpowder Green with pure peppermint leaves, inspired by the tea served in the souks of the Moroccan medina. We've added a sprinkling of blue cornflower petals for a bit of a British touch.

Fired and rolled 'gunpowder' style green tea was one of the first teas the Chinese traded with the Arabs. It's since become particularly prevalent in North Africa, where the tea is traditionally blended with mint and served strong with heaps of sugar. You might like to enjoy our Marrakech Mint in the traditional style with honey or sugar, but we'd suggest brewing lightly to appreciate its nuanced flavour - it's a surprisingly refreshing way to cool off after a hard day's haggling.

Ingredients

Brew the perfect cup

Add one teaspoon (around 2g) of loose leaf tea per cup and use freshly drawn water heated to around 80 degrees. For the ideal temperature either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for 3-5 minutes after boiling. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Best enjoyed without milk.

A note from Whittard

“I’m a big fan of our Mango & Bergamot – the coloured petals look lovely against the green tea leaves, and I like to store it in glass sweetshop jars on my kitchen shelf.”

- Marie Laure, Covent Garden Store Manager

Blended

Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we’ve been experimenting with our own inventive blends. The Chinese were the first to try blending tea leaves with fruits and flowers and it takes time, skill and imagination to master the art. It’s all about creating the perfect balance of flavours: we blind taste at least 20 different variations before settling on the perfect recipe. Just as some musicians have perfect pitch, an expert tea blender needs to have some pretty perceptive tastebuds…

* - - - - why change by Ms Terry Jack on 11th February 2016

Used to love Moroccan mint and bought loads of it over the last few years but it has been changed from spearmint to peppermint and now tastes like drinking chewing gum. I fell in love with mint while travelling in Morocco and wouldn't have if they made it with peppermint. Won't be buying this again
