Moroccan mint tea is a daily staple in Morocco and North Africa. This Moroccan mint tea recipe is a delicious way to reap the health benefits of both green tea and fresh mint.
There are many different ways to make it. The traditional recipe calls for sugar and that’s what I’ve used in this recipe, but you can experiment with healthier sweeteners like honey or agave nectar for a healthier drink.
3 cups water
1 tablespoon loose Chinese gunpowder green tea
1/4 c. sugar
1 oz. fresh mint (about one large bunch)
Bring the water to a boil in a pot. Place loose tea in the teapot, pour in one cup of the boiling water, swish the tea and water around, then strain out the water and leave the tea leaves in the pot.
Add the remaining two cups of boiling water to the teapot and let it steep for at least five minutes.
Add mint and sugar, stir, and let steep another 3-5 minutes.
Serve with fresh mint leaves on the rims of the tea cups. Enjoy!
