Any traveler who has been to Morocco is probably familiar with the green tea that is served at all hours of the day in this North African country.
Served in beautiful and ornately-decorated metal or ceramic jars and poured steaming hot into cups, this tea is delightful and delicious. It’s the perfect way to start your morning or to settle down your tastebuds after a spicy meal.
Fortunately for us, even if you don’t live in Morocco, this tea is easy to prepare at home. Here’s how.
- 1 liter of water
- 3-4 bunches of fresh mint leaves
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 2 tablespoons of loose-leaf green tea
Start off by pouring the liter of water into a tea pot and placing it on the stove to oil. Wait until the tea pot screeches and the water is boiling.
Once it’s done and has cooled off just a tad, add the mint leaves and the 4 tablespoons of sugar to the water and stir.
Next, you’ll want to place the loose leaf tea in an appropriate container and put it into the teapot. Let the tea brew for 3-4 minutes, approximately.
Take the tea leaves out, and you’re done! Pour from height into the tea cups in order to aerate the beverage.
