Maghrebi Matcha - Peppermint Matcha
Maghreb Mint was the original ingredient to make a perfect Moroccan Mint tea. Gunpowder green tea out of China mixed with mint grown in the Maghrebi region of northwestern Africa made for a satisfying sweet tea like no one else had.
Love your traditional Moroccan Mint tea, but just wish it had a heavier caffeine kick? Or that you could do it as a latte without the green tea getting lost in the lipids? The Maghrebi Matcha is for you. With the caffeine content of a cup of black coffee, this drink will wake you up with the pleasantly smooth bite of peppermint.
