In The Gambia, there is no such thing as breaking your fast during the holy month of Ramadan without a cup of Mborr-Mborr to supplement your meal! With a nickname like “Te du Gambie,” Mborr-Mborr is heavily associated with The Gambia by surrounding nations. Mborr-Mbor is recognized for its flavor, health benefits and most widely for its aromatic properties - an overall delicious indulge! 

PERSONALITY

Mborr-Mborr is a caffeine-free tea with incredible aromatic properties. It changes colors as it steep - a subtle green to a dark brown color. Enjoy as is (believe me, you won’t be disappointed!) or add a hint of sugar as is commonly consumed in The Gambia.
