At any given time of the day, the Moroccan mint tea gives a promise to lift up a low, stressed spirit. It’s widely consumed in Morocco. It’s also a sign of generosity, a crowd pleaser, brings family & friends together and it would simply make your day much better. I have had different tea types from bags & stuff but my Moroccan tea satisfies me the most. And really sometimes, I feel bad for those who never had the chance to enjoy it. So, here is the step by step illustrations for you guys, if anyone needs to feast on some tea. And what’s better than a cup of tea and cookie?!
- A handful of mint (Fresh mint is a MUST)
- 3 teaspoons of (Chinese green tea)
- 3 tablespoons sugar (more or less, to taste)
- 4 cups boiling water
Put the tea in the pot add less than half a cup of boiling water, bring it to a boil on the stove. Drain it the hot water (You’ll see a dark color in your glass).
Now wash the mint sprigs, add them to tea. Add the sugar, then fill it with the boiling water (it’s the secret to good Moroccan tea). The mint should be completely submerged with water (You can use a spoon to do that).
Put the teapot on the stove to brew until you see big bubbles/foam on top. Remove it & either use a spoon to mix the sugar or do it the traditional Moroccan way by pouring some tea in a glass & pouring it back in the teapot. Cover the tea pot to keep it hot. Serve immediately.
