This tea tastes just like the tea I brought home from Morocco.Great taste, great product!Kathleen K.
When you visit Morocco, Atay is service morning noon and night it is such a part of the daily life and culture. The smell, taste and quality of the Atay bring you back to a relaxing afternoon in Morocco. I love it so much thank you for carrying it.
Exactly what I expected.
Great taste just like in Morocco!
For years I've been on a quest to find the perfect mint green tea that would be flavorful hot or cold. Because I have always been impressed with the Mina food products (tagine, harissa, preserved lemons) I decided to snoop around their website. I had no clue they had artisanal teas too!
This tea does not disappoint and the picture says it all. Atay is silky and full bodied with a deep green color that makes you think you've just received the leaves straight to your door from Morocco. The unique mint flavor is not overpowering but, instead, blankets your mouth with a pleasant tingling sensation that still allows the grassy green tea notes to come through. Hot or cold, this tea delivers everything you expect from a top line tea product. (Tea bag on the right is out of the individual packet and ready for steeping. Tea bag on the left has been squeezed for every bit of goodness and it still is bursting from the bag!) Toss the Twinings....and anything else you have gathering dust. Mina teas should be your #1 choice.
Some years ago, I was sat beneath the awning of a tiny makeshift shop in Sidi Hamarouche, halfway up Mt Toubkhal in Morrocco. It was here that I was served Moroccan mint tea.My host not only allowed me to observe the art of making the tea (almost akin to a Japanese Tea Ceremony), but also revealed the ingredients to me, and the correct proportions of them. Since then, I've searched high and low for it. What I've found is that the world is stuffed with fake versions - fake, mainly because they don't use the correct mint - Nana Mint - it's softer, almost aromatic, and very distinct from the typical Spearmints and Peppermints used by virtually every other 'Moroccan' brand on the market. Thus, with the emphasis on the use of Nana mint, I snapped up a box to try it.The result, for me at least, is to declare that "it's close". However, the Shara Green Tea in the blend, just doesn't have the depth of the Chinese 'Gunpowder' Green tea my host used. Thus, what you get has less punch than what I was expecting.It is, of course, possible that Shara Green tea is more expensive, so the Berbers of the Atlas Mountains don't use it, which leaves me to ponder if, given their claim of authenticity, this version is served at the finer places in Morrocco, rather than in the mountains. If so, all I can say is that from Oukaimeden to the Sahara and back to Marrakech, I never saw Shara green tea used once, only, and ever only, Gunpowder Tea.That said, if I want a mint tea, this is now my go-to; not for its 'almost' authentic taste, but for the fact that it is actually quite elegant - one might describe it as the Earl Grey of the mint tea world, even. It's certainly a far cry from the overpowering efforts of other brands. And for that, it gets four stars for class.
Fantastic and tasty tea!
Green tea is my go to tea - I drink at least 2-3 cups a day. This one is by far the best one I’ve had! The loose tea version is great too.
