Dalvay Breeze Tea
Dalvay by the Sea is a wonderful beach area just north of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. Shirley and I love it so much, we had our wedding reception in 1986 at the famous Dalvay-by-the-Sea Inn.  Mint tea is the national drink of Morocco and is truly one of the world’s great tea blends. Tea itself was introduced to Morocco in the mid 19th century by the British. The addition of mint is believed to have first happened in the bazaar at Tangiers a short while thereafter. Merchants discovered that infusing the blend produced a drink that was at once vigorous and soothing, thanks to the therapeutic qualities of mint. If you have ever been to Morocco and haggled over a rug you can appreciate the importance of those two qualities! True to the spirit of the original blend our tea is flavoured with a pungent and refreshing mint. This bright and invigorating tea is perfect any time of day.
