Marvellous Mint Teas

We love mint tea. It is arguably one of the world's most favourite herbal teas. We love it because it is revitalising, refreshing and aromatic, and splendid digestion aid. Like all herbal teas, mint is naturally caffeine-free, so perfect for any time of day. 

Mint is also a wonder-herb that works well in many infusions and tisanes. Its distinctive flavour is delightfully peppy and thoroughly enjoyable. Mint also boasts many wellbeing benefits and is a genuinely versatile herb suited ideally for culinary and aromatherapy purposes.

Marvellous Mint Teas 

We really believe that mint tea, whether peppermint, spearmint or a minty infusion, is rather marvellous!


Minty Facts & Stories

One of our favourite stories about mint can be found in Greek Mythology. According to legend, the God Pluto was caught in the arms of a nymph called Menthe by his wife. Driven by jealousy, Pluto's wife turned Menthe into a plant. Pluto did not intervene, but in memory of the beautiful Nymph, he gave the plant an attractive minty scent. 

Mythology aside, mint has been found in Egyptian tombs dating as far back as 1000 BC. During the Middle Ages, mint was scattered to disguise bad smells in the home and beyond. The Greeks used it to clean their tables and in baths to stimulate the senses. The Romans added mint to food to aid digestion and to help with oral hygiene.  In gardening, mint is also fantastic in 'companion planting'. Because of its highly aromatic fragrance, it naturally deters garden pests away from your favourite home-grown crops. There are over thirty mint plant varieties, and they're all appreciated for their aroma and high content of essential oil. In addition, mint is said to improve breathing and soothe cramps within the digestive system. Mint also contains Vitamins A and C and a collection of minerals to boost health. 

Here you'll find our favourite marvellous pure mint teas and mint infusions and a delicious recipe for making your very own Moroccan mint tea.

Moroccan Mint Tea

In North Africa and the Middle East, mint is undoubtedly one of the most favourite beverages. 'Proper' Moroccan Tea is prepared with green tea, fresh spearmint leaves, and sugar blocks, which is famous for its strength, flavour, and potency. Drunk ceremonially and traditionally prepared by the male patriarch of the family, it is a sign of hospitality to guests, friends and family members. With the sugar and spearmint added to the teapot itself, the brewed and sweetened tea is elaborately poured into decorative glasses at a substantial height to aerate the infusion gently. Although 'Moroccan Tea' is considered a mint tea, it begins with strong green tea and lots of spearmint. 

Here's our recipe, which can be tweaked to taste, but sugar will play a considerable part in that because of the richness of the strong Gunpowder green tea.


Moroccan Tea Recipe

  • Boil (filtered) cold water
  • Place one teaspoon per person of Green Oasis Gunpowder green tea in a teapot
  • Pour over some freshly boiled water – swirl gently and discard the water retaining the tea – this process wakes up the tea!
  • Using the remaining boiled water, pour over the wet leaves
  • Steep the tea for 2 minutes
  • Add a handful of sprigs of fresh spearmint or dried peppermint to the pot
  • Add at least 3-4 teaspoons of granulated sugar into the teapot and stir
  • Allow the brew to infuse for 3-4 more minutes
  • Pour from a height (take care not to scald you or your friends!) into heat-proof glasses
  • Enjoy the bold, sweet flavours
