Everyone I know is going somewhere exotic and paradisiac this summer – except me.
We all have places we dream of visiting one day. One of those places for me is Morocco. I’d love to explore the public markets, buy a handmade tagine and enjoy some of the local cuisine. Ahhh. Doesn’t that sound exciting?
Unfortunately a trip to Morocco is not in the plans this summer unless I either win the lottery or sell one of my kidneys in the black market. Yeah, I don’t think either of those is happening any time soon. But, who says I can’t bring Morocco to me?
This tea has very interesting flavours that go very well together. You get some freshness from the mint, a hint of bitterness from the green tea and delicious sweetness from the honey. It is to die for. This is what I call taking tea to the next level.
I have the cold version here, but feel free to skip the ice if it is not as hot where you live as it is here on the West Coast.
