Moroccan Mint Tea

Moroccan Mint Tea is something I've been meaning to try recently. I love tea, I drink tea too much, but it's always English builders tea. I really wish I liked green tea, herbal tea etc, but I just don't. I need a ridiculous amount of sugar for me to like it, and a lot of the time I'm too impatient for it to become drinking temperature. But mint tea has for a long time, been very enticing ( too much time spent watching food programs and being influenced easily), and this weekend I gave it a go, and it was very tasty.

What you will need:
Tea pot -
Teacup/ Tainted glass tumbler
  • 10 fresh mint sprigs, plus some for garnish
  • 2 green tea teabags, or three teaspoons green leaf tea
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, or more to taste
  • 4 cups water
Place all your mint, teabags and sugar into your teapot. Boil your water and pour into the teapot (about 4 cups).
Leave to brew for three minutes, then strain your tea, and its ready to pour.
I added another mint sprig to add some colour.

My verdict : Tasty as an occasional treat, but for general purposes I will stick to builders tea!
Scott's verdict : Again, quite nice, but can't beat English breakfast tea!


  1. I'm not a big tea drinker (I tend to just stick to green tea) but that does sound tasty. PS thanks for the follow :) following back!
