Moroccan Mint Tea

A lovely friend brought some wonderful mint from her garden to us today so I thought what a better way to enjoy it in, than a beautiful mint tea which brings back to me the smells & tastes of Morocco.

very easily made, does have sugar in it but you can substitute I guess.

Mint tea (from the food of morocco)

ingredients

  • 1 bunch fresh mint
  • 2 teaspoons chinese gunpowder green tea
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste

method

  • wash and pat dry mint leaves with a tea towel
  • rinse a teapot with boiling water, add tea and a little boiling water, swirl briefly and allow to settle. pour out the tea water to remove any tea dust, then half fill teapot again with boiling water

  • take the mint leaves and add to pot, add sugar and then fill with boiling water.

  • allow tea to brew for a few minutes
  • pour out a glass of tea and pour back into teapot. repeat a couple more times to dissolve sugar


this tea is served in tea glasses to make it super special and also poured from a height to aerate it. add a mint sprig to each glass and sit down and enjoy it…mmmmm

  • Hi Cathie!

    Your blog is BEAUTIFUL! Hearts, and pink and sprinkles (hundreds & thousands!) everywhere! And your kids are all kinds of adorable. I read your about me section and I am amazed you make such lovely and delicious looking desserts and you don't eat them. Your mint tea post brings back memories of sitting in my mother in law's beautiful garden in England last summer. She grows fresh mint and makes tea with it too!

  • This looks fabuuuu. I heart this tea!
