Moroccan Mint Tea is a soothing blend of loose leaf green tea and mint, usually fresh.
This tea is made with an interesting tea made from Gunpowder tea, which are hand rolled tea leaves. It’s really cool to watch them unfurl while they steep. Mix them with Spearmint Tea and you have Moroccan Mint Tea! See the instructions below to do it the authentic Moroccan way.
Moroccan Mint Tea
- 7 Fresh mint sprigs or Spearmint Tea
- 1 tsp Loose gunpowder tea
- 5 cups Boiling water
- 3 tbsp Caster sugar Use more or less to taste
You will need a teapot to make this recipe.
Add the gunpowder tea and a cup of the boiled water to the tea pot. Swirl a few seconds to rinse the leaves. Strain out and discard water, reserving tea leaves in pot.
Add remaining 4 cups boiling water to tea and let steep 2 minutes. Stir in sugar (to taste) and mint sprigs and steep 3 to 4 minutes more. Serve in small heatproof glasses.
If using Spearmint tea, add it after you rinse the Gunpowder tea.
