It is believed that it was Europeans, specifically the English that introduced Moroccans to tea. Although no one is certain, the first shipments of loose leaf tea to the country probably arrived via British interests in China. The beverage was an instant hit with the Muslim populace who already had a custom of drinking a hot beverage made of locally grown mint leaves.  Before long, it was discovered that when the tea was added to the mint beverage, which was heavy and harsh, the cup smoothed out and became much more palatable. And so East met West in a most satisfying way.

We're pleased to offer the next best thing to a trip to a Marrakech tea stall, Moroccan Madness tea. Moroccans say that tea should be bitter as death, sweet as life and as mellow as love. With our blend of Sri Lankan and Indian teas and Washington state mint, (some of the finest mint in the world), we've believe we've captured that in this cup. Taste the flavors of worlds colliding!

Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
