Morrocan Mint Tea

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Beverages

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 pt (750 ml) water
  • 3 ts To 4 ts tea leaves
  • 20 To 30 spearmint leaves
  • 4 Sprigs of mint


Boil the water in the kettle. Warm the teapot. Put the tea and mint leaves
in and add the boiling water. Leave it to brew for 2 or 3 minutes. While
brewing, warm tumblers by rinsing in hot water. Put one sprig of mint in
each tumbler. Pour tea into each tumbler through a strainer. It is normal
to add sugar lumps to the teapot, but it can be added tot the tumbler to
taste after pouring.

Now this is the original Moroccan mint tea recipe. I drink an awful lot of
tea, lemon or mint, and this is my quick mint tea version:

Make tea as you do normally; cut some sprigs of mint from the plant in the
pot on the balcony, rinse under the tap, put into a big mug, pour tea into
mug: enjoy!

Hope I've been of help! Danielle Grimbergen
