We love to serve and blend various teas here at Riad Botanica

Upon arrival, we serve every guest the customary Moroccan mint tea. This tea has survived the test of time not only because of its delicious taste and intoxicating aroma, but also because of its many benefits for the body and the mind.

With its natural mood-stabilising and sedative qualities that help you unwind after a long day, the tea also contains an amino acid called I-Theanine. It can encourage the body to relax by targeting GABA receptors in the brain that are responsible for feelings of stress; when your body feels better, so makes your mind.

Moroccan mint tea may do wonders for digestive symptoms such as gas, bloating, constipation, and indigestion.

It is a natural remedy to help patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) due to the cooling effect of menthol in mint tea, which helps soothe an upset stomach and regulate digestion. Menthol can relax the stomach muscles that can contract and cause cramping. It also increases bile in the stomach, which helps to digest food easily, decreases sensations of nausea, and keeps your digestive system working efficiently.

The warm Moroccan mint tea containing antibacterial properties aids in alleviating your throat discomfort, suppressing your cough, and opening up your airways. Menthol in mint tea may loosen and bring up mucus from the lungs, which is why mint appears in many cough drops. Menthol in the leaves also helps with the nasal sensation of overflow while getting rid of your congestion with compounds such as vitamin B, potassium, and calcium for your body to absorb.
