Original Moroccan ‘Le Touareg Nana’ | Sweet Spearmint | Mentha spicata | This naturally grown and processed Moroccan ‘Nana’ Mint, actually known as ‘Mentha spicata’ or spearmint has a lower menthol content than peppermint. It is less of an irritant and therefore more suitable as a sweet-refreshing drink, hot or cold.
This Wellness Tisane is suitable in remedies for children and a favorite traditional beverage in Morocco and the Middle East, served also as a blend with Chinese Green Zhucha Perl Tea (TeaFountain # 1771 ‘Green Tea Le Touareg Nana‘). Enjoy this ‘Sweet Mint Tea’ as Iced Tea or Party cocktails as well.
To sweeten consider Rock Candy Crystals or our popular Oregon Tea Honeys # 88005.

Preparation: Bring fresh water to the boil. Warm up your tea pot by rinsing it with hot water. Fill one teaspoon per 6 oz cup of this Herbal Tisane into the preheated tea pot or preferred cup. Pour the hot water into the tea. Let infuse up to 8 Minutes and serve. Remove infuser or pour your tea into another tea-pot or thermos carafe. Using an infuser or ‘Permanent Tea Filter’ for your cup or pot makes it easy to separate the fruits and herbs from the beverage after steeping.
Culinary notes: Because of its fresh and light character this Herbal Tisane is offered as a choice with light foods, vegetarian, Macrobiotic or vegetable recipes and special desserts including fruits and lighter French cheese selections. Superb Iced Tea selection. Suitable as a ‘day & night’ children’s tea.
