Celebrated New York City personal chef, Mina Kallamni, is known for her exquisite cooking and her versatile line of Moroccan condiments and cooking sauces (Harissa, Shakshuka, Tagine). Now, Mina is bringing a historic piece of Moroccan culture to America by way of tea.
A beverage essential to the cultural fabric in Morocco, tea is a symbol of warmth and hospitality. The ceremonial preparation of Moroccan tea is nearly as important as enjoying the drink while the height from which the preparer pours Moroccan tea into a glass is seen as a sign of their skill with the tradition.
Unlike other tea brands, Mina’s new line of premium teas use organic ingredients, such as Nana mint and Louiza lemon verbena, entirely sourced from the fields of Morocco, celebrating the traditional and bold flavors. The use of biodegradable teabags free from staple or metal ensure a high level of environmental consciousness. When sipping Mina’s tea, you can taste the quality.
