ARABIAN NIGHTS | BLACK TEA & MINT
For generations Tunisians have enjoyed 'nana' tea or mint tea. A North African household tradition, mint tea is the essence of Tunisian culture and hospitality.
Often enjoyed after the family dinner or with guests over conversation, the tea was often prepared at the table, over a small charcoal stove. The tea and sugar is brewed in a pot or kettle and boiled for a few minutes, stirring intermittently to mix the sugar, then off the boil and fresh mint added and left to sit for a minute or two.
The tea is usually enjoyed sweet with the addition of fresh mint, provides powerful antioxidants to protect the body, served with a little scoop of pine nuts dropped into each glass to give the tea a nutty and moorish flavour.
