Print this Recipe    Moroccan Mint Tea

Makes 4 cups

apporx 1 1/4 pints (750 ml) water
3-4 tsp tea leaves
20-30 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!

Reviewer: Suffy_78 from Ireland
It's typical of middle eastern countries to serve tea with mint or rosemary in other cases. The taste may sometimes be too strong for other palates... My suggestion is to start with adding a leaf or two of mint in your teapot and see how you like the taste... Naturally the more mint leaves you add, the stronger the flavour is. All in all, it's refreshing and a welcome change from ordinary tea....
