Tea appears to be the endemic beverage of much of the modern Near and Middle East, too. Yet they were not drinking tea in Persia during SCA period. And while mint tea - gunpowder green tea and fresh mint - is THE beverage of modern Morocco, the actual tea was not introduced until the late 18th century by the English as a gift to a local ruler.
