Loose-leaf Touareg Tea from Damann Frères: Gunpowder Tea With Mint

Blend of tightly rolled, dark olive-green tea leaves with paler green, thin dried leavesView Full Resolution

This photo shows a blend of green tea with mint, combining gunpowder green tea with mint leaves in the tradition of Moroccan mint tea.

The darker, olive-green leaves that are tightly rolled are the gunpowder green tea leaves; the mint leaves are larger, flatter, and less tightly rolled, instead having a mostly flat appearance with wrinkly edges.
