4. Green Ginger Mint Tea

Gunpowder green tea with spearmint is a famous Moroccan drink that is a great digestive. If you’ve never tried this drink, you should definitely try it.

Gunpowder tea is rolled into little balls which unfurl in hot water and release a slightly smoky, bitter infusion. Green ginger mint tea is also great iced. You can sweeten it with honey, if you want.
