Marrakech Mint

Product Details

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.

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.

* * - - - Prefer Moroccan Mint by Carrie-Ann on 28th June 2016

Not bad for what it is, but... this is NOT anywhere near as good as Moroccan Mint. Please bring back Moroccan Mint tea--yours was the very best I could find before you changed it!

* - - - - Please bring back Moroccan Mint by John on 12th May 2016

I can only co-sign the previous review. I loved Moroccan Mint and still have a small stack of it in my kitchen. I was curious to try the new Marrakesh Mint, but I am deeply disappointed. While Moroccan Mint always reminded me of the tea you are served when visiting arabic countries or even friends. The new blend tastes like a cheap chewing gum due to the usage of peppermint instead of spearmint. I really don't like it and can only hope that Whittard changes back to the old Moroccan Mind blend.

Absolutely lovely.

* - - - - 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

Origin

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…

“I love staging themed afternoon teas, and at the moment I’m trying out some of our more bizarre blends, like Bohemian Raspberry and Blueberry Rooibos!”
