I love Moroccan mint tea, especially after a really good meal. I prefer mine served hot and a little light on the sugar, but the husband requested an iced version. I was happy to oblige, especially since I’ve been craving mojitos (not the best beverage of choice for a breastfeeding mama) and still had some mint laying around after taking photos of my orange & mint coconut oil scrub.
This light and refreshing Moroccan mint tea satisfies my mojito cravings with its strong yet sweet minty goodness. Plus it’s packed with good for you green tea.
Moroccan Mint Tea
|Cook time||10 minutes|
- 4 cups Water
- 4 tablespoons Loose Leaf Green Tea or 4 Bags
- 20 Mint Leaves (Torn )
- 4 tablespoons Sugar
|Bring water to boil in a kettle. Pour a small amount to a teapot with your sugar. Stir until dissolved.|
|Add mint, tea, and the rest of the water to the teapot. Steep for 5 minutes.|
|Serve in teacups or over ice like I did.|
You can always adjust the amount of sugar to taste. I suggest trying Moroccan mint tea served hot if it’s your first time enjoying this beverage. There is a reason why the Moroccan’s enjoy this stuff hot and that reason is because it’s DELICIOUS that way.
It’s still super tasty over ice and when the weather starts getting a little warmer, I’m sure I’ll be enjoying it cold pretty often. As a matter of fact, I made a pitcher to keep in the fridge and had six glasses of this amazing mint tea throughout the day. Yum!
I’m surprised that not many people know about Moroccan mint tea. Have you had it before?
