The third in the Tea Time series, Moroccan Mint Tea, is inspired by Mococcan tea time traditions which are an integral part of daily life and a symbol of Moroccan hospitality. To entertain guests, Moroccans mint tea is prepared in a traditional teapot called a "berad" and served in "kissan" glasses, which are ornately decorated. After the tea is served, it is sweetened with sugar!

The Pro Gear Slim "Mint & Sugar" features a transparent olive green body with a translucent white cap, inspired by the fresh spearmint and sugar used to prepare the tea.

Sailor was founded in 1911. The founder Kyugoro Sakata was given a fountain pen by a friend returning from the UK after studying at the Royal Navy. He was inspired and determined to start making fountain pens in Japan. Sailor became the first fountain pen company in Japan, and earned many more firsts in Japan -- first ballpoint pen in 1948, first ink cartridge in 1954 and first brush pen in 1972, etc.

In the 1970's, Sailor made a popular beginner fountain pen, "Candy," that sold more than 15 million within a few years. However, the number of the fountain pen users were declining as ballpoint pens became more mainstream.

In 1981, Sailor decided to go in the opposite direction from their "Candy" pen and began focusing on producing a higher standard series, which is the 1911 series we see today. Their focus on making a higher standard provides a great foundation for their later series of pens. Today, Sailor makes one of the most diverse lines of nibs, some of which are designed for specific writing purposes such as writing musical notes to one that is best for character writing.
