Herbal Tea & White Sofas: Why Only Moroccan Mint Tea Will Do It For Faouzia
When Faouzia feels unmoored before a show, only one foodstuff will psychologically anchor her: Moroccan mint tea.
"I use a little teakettle and then you put the dry mint leaves and then you add hot water and then you let it sit," the singer/songwriter instructs GRAMMY.com in the below clip. "Then, you empty out the water in a little cup and then you let that sit."
From this alchemy comes a beverage that takes the edge off her 11th-hour backstage nerves—ones that leave her "heart [feeling] like it's dropping, but also like it's lifting."
In the newest episode of Herbal Tea & White Sofas, let Faouzia lay her tea procedure on you and open up about what fan communion means to her.
