Ritual & Secrets of Mint Tea
Which glass for a Mint Tea?
At Maison NANA1807, the Mint tea glass represents what the mannequin is for Haute Couture - it highlights the Mint tea . The glass influences the perception as much as the sensations before tasting Mint tea .
To convince yourself of this, you are invited to one of our tasting sessions of MAISON NANA1807's Mint Teas. The same Mint Tea served, in three glasses of varying heights, widths and shapes, will give you the impression of drinking three different Mint Teas . The texture, aroma and flavor are not the same.
According to our Mint Tea Expert, the container must bring an additional seduction to the tasting of Mint Tea :
"We put a lot of time into developing each of our Mint Tea recipes , so it is important that our products are presented in the right glasses. The nobility of Mint Tea must be respected. "

These glasses are made in France by the company Verreries Mécaniques Champenoises, based in Reims, most of the production was then shipped to Blida in Algeria .
