It is customary in Morocco to drink mint tea, very sweet and very hot. We drink it with family (each family has its own recipe and small variations…), with friends, it is the comfort drink par excellence and we enjoy it throughout the day. Moroccan tea is mainly prepared with green tea and mint. It is a magnificent and highly appreciated ritual that I invite you to discover today.
For a medium-sized Teapot:
1 tablespoon of green tea
1 beautiful bouquet of mint
3 leaves of fresh or dried verbena
1 tablespoon of orange blossom water.
1 and a half tablespoons of sugar (or more according to taste, in Morocco we put a lot more…)
Traditional Preparation Method:
Bring the water to a boil.
Pour the green tea into the teapot.
Add a little boiling water, let it infuse for 30 seconds and discard this water.
Add the mint, verbena and sugar to the teapot.
Fill the teapot with boiling water.
Add the orange blossom water.
Let it infuse for 5 minutes.
Pour the tea into a glass and then pour this tea into the teapot again. Repeat this operation 3 times, this will allow you to mix the tea well.
Pour the tea from very high to aerate it.
Enjoy! It’s time to taste!
