Mint & Plant Teas

Discover new flavours, new fragrances as surprising as pleasant. Mint and plant teas can be tart, sweet or full-bodied: their character changes according to the many possible combinations.

The freshness of vegetable tea

Scientifically called mentha spicata, mint is a member of the lamiaceae family. Today it is cultivated on a large scale and is used all over the world. In addition, mint is known for its antioxidant and moisturizing properties.

The traditional mint tea is an emblematic drink of North Africa, symbolizing joy, sharing and hospitality. The Berber people traditionally takes it with a lot of sugar. It has now become one of the most popular teas along with Earl Grey tea.

Mint and herbal teas are mainly green teas unlike other flavoured teas which can also be made from black tea or white tea.

Mint tea combines the benefits of both green tea and mint.

Tasting

To prepare your mint and herbal tea, use hot water between 80°C and 90°C, as mentioned in the tea tasting guide. It is recommended to not use boiling water to avoid damaging the tea leaves.

Let your tea infuse for about 3 minutes and then sip it, ideally after a meal, and let its soothing freshness invade you.

For a stronger, richer tasting tea, try spicy and woody teas with ginger, cinnamon, cloves or liquorice.

Storage

Store your mint and herbal tea in an airtight tin, away from light and heat.
