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!
