In North Africa, specifically in Morocco, Mint is known as Nanah and epitomizes hospitality and conviviality. A glass of Mint tea is traditionally served to passing travellers. It can also be found finely chopped with a pinch of cinnamon on orange salads.
Caraway dominates the flavour palette, before letting the resinous notes of pine needles or sap & green notes reminiscent of cut grass burst. Low-key hints of white flowers can also be noticed. The fresh sensation is moderate and short lived. A slightly pungent taste can be felt on the palate.
