It’s not just for the mint tea; it’s a gesture of welcome, a genuinely good-hearted way of saying “I see you,” and also a powerful reminder that you’re among friends here.
Here is how you can make Moroccan mint tea at home by following simple instructions for making traditional mint tea.
Ingredients (Makes 6 servings)
1 tablespoon loose Chinese gunpowder green tea
5 cups boiling water
3 to 4 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
1 large bunch fresh mint (1 ounce)
Teapot Medium size: about 6 tea glasses
Put 1 cup of boiling water into a teapot. Swirl gently to warm the teapot. Then strain out and discard the boiled water, reserving tea leaves in the pot.
Add the remaining 4 cups of boiling water to the tea and let it steep for 2 minutes. Add sugar (to taste) and mint sprigs, and step 3 to 4 minutes more. Served in small heat-resistant cups.
