This is very refreshing tea. Perfect on a hot afternoon, after a meal or when you still have a ridiculous amount of mint growing in your garden, despite the cooler weather. This is certainly the case for us right now! I think my mint just wants to ‘do it’s th-ang’ right now, despite the cooler months! Enjoy anytime really!
Fresh mint (try for a short leaf bunch, with less stem)
Sugar to taste
Place the tea in a tea pot (allow 3 tablespoons for a large tea pot about 5 to 6 glasses). Pour over ½ cup fresh boiling water. Allow the tea to steep (let stand) for 10 seconds only. This will rinse the green tea and allow the leaves to open up. Pour out the water.
Add all the mint and sugar to taste. Pour fresh boiling water onto mix to fill the pot.
Allow the tea to steep for a few minutes. (If you prefer your tea strong, you may bring the full tea pot to boil and let it stand for a couple more minutes).
Kick back and enjoy your little taste of Morocco!
