Without question, Tangiers is one of the most exotic urban centers on earth. For centuries this Northern Moroccan city has been home to colorful characters from all walks of life. From pirates to traders, writers, painters and eccentric millionaires, the ancient city has seen it all. During the 1940s and 50s, Tangiers was considered an International Zone and as the cold war began to heat up, even served as a major meeting point for international spies and weapons dealers. It was during this time that beatnik author William S. Burroughs set up shop to write his famous novel, Naked Lunch. In fact, the book’s setting of Interzone is loosely based on the dynamic city.So what draws people to Tangiers? One is its location at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic. Another is its sultry climate. Yet another is its fantastic cuisine, which leans heavily on spice and fresh fruit, including lemons. Present at almost every meal in Tangiers, either at its outdoor cafes or in the private homes of its residents, are lemons plucked fresh from orchards outside the city. Their juices are squeezed over grilled meats, breads, and stews, just about anything, including tea from time to time. In the exotic spirit of Tangiers, we’ve taken the flavor of fresh lemons and mixed it with a top quality white tea to create something best described as poetry in a cup. With a light brisk character layered with sultry hints of lemon, from the first sip you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to heart of the magical city. Brew a pot, curl up with some Burroughs and while away an afternoon or two.
