Moroccan mint tea is widely enjoyed throughout North Africa through the region of Magrheb (Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Mauritania and Libya). It’s a blend of green tea and mint and has become a staple in the famous hospitality of this desert area.

It is traditionally infused 3 times for increasing periods of time, resulting in progressively stronger infusions as described by the Maghrebi proverb:

“The first glass is as gentle as life,
the second is as strong as love,
the third is as bitter as death.”
