Try to think of an occasion where tea seems out of place... Practically impossible, right? Tea is great in the morning, the afternoon, or at night. It can be found in formal tea ceremonies and casual cafés. It can be black, green, fruity, herbal, hot, cold, sweetened, unsweetened; so many options!

As ‘traders on the culinary seas,’ it’s our job to travel the world in search of unique and interesting products—and some of our buyers have had the great pleasure of touching down in Morocco once or twice. So, when one of them suggested that we look into creating our own version of the traditional sweet, mint tea served in nearly every Moroccan home and restaurant, we wondered, Why didn’t we think of that sooner?
