Mint Tea & Rosewater draws much of its inspiration from the generosity and ceremony of Moroccan hospitality. In a land of scents and flavours, where cooking is an act of love and eating is a refined art, it is not uncommon for a hostess to spend a week preparing a suitable feast for her guests. Hospitality is at the heart of Morocco.

Both “mint tea” and “rosewater” are integral parts of Moroccan hospitality. No social nor business exchange is complete without a steaming glass of fragrant mint tea. No feast nor ceremony is complete without rosewater sprinkled over the fingers of guests as a mark of graciousness and welcome.

The seductive aroma of freshly brewed mint and the intensely fragrant perfume of rosewater are impermanent, but their beauty lasts forever in your memory.

Due to the fleeting nature of special occasions, Mint Tea & Rosewater is devoted to providing a glorious and magical feast for the senses, which long after the last glass is cleared will stay forever rosy in your memory.
