Moroccan mint tea is one of the most refreshing drinks to have during the hotter months. Moroccan mint tea is great for allergies, aids digestion and helps people with relaxation.
If drinking hot tea during the summer months isn’t your thing, then try out this Iced Moroccan Mint Tea recipe instead for a refreshing summer drink. It’s like a non-alcoholic mojito.
Gunpowder Green Tea
Fresh mint leaves
1. Add a spoonful of gunpowder green tea to a tea pot
2. Fill a tea pot with fresh mint leaves – traditional Moroccan mint tea uses mint as a whole – the leaves and stalks – so there’s no need to cut the mint – use as is
3. Add boiling hot water into the tea pot
4. Add sugar if desired
5. Let the tea brew
6. Once the tea is brewed to a taste you desire, pour the tea into a glass measuring jug and allow it to cool
7. Once cool, transfer the tea to a glass bottle and put in the fridge. If you like you can also add a few mint leaves to the bottle to infuse more mint flavour
8. Serve with ice
