About Green Tea with Mint
Green tea with mint is a common kind of flavored tea. In the west, certain types of green tea with mint are referred to as Moroccan mint tea, although the term is used very loosely and does not always refer to the same style consumed in Morocco. In north Africa, this style of tea is referred to as Touareg tea. Green tea is commonly made together with mint in Morocco and other north African countries. Traditionally, in Morocco, gunpowder green tea is blended with spearmint or apple mint.

In order to make green tea / mint blends, the mint can be dried and mixed with the tea leaves before brewing, and many teas are packaged and sold in this form. Alternatively, the essential oil of the mint can be used to flavor the tea leaves before packaging. Or, either dried or fresh mint leaves can be mixed with the tea at the time of brewing.
The brewing of green tea with mint can be a bit more complex than the same process for brewing black tea with mint.
Many varieties of mint exist; the most popular to use is spearmint, although other popular mints used include apple mint, peppermint, and orange mint.
