In honor of my wonderful husband fixing my Moroccan Teapot today and also finding some awesome Moroccan tea cups a few days ago at World Market, I decided that I wanted to celebrate something simply, deliciously perfect… Moroccan Mint Tea!
I should start off by saying that, in my opinion, Morocco is one of the most wonderful places in the world. And from my experience, Moroccans are the kindest, friendliest, most warm-hearted people I’ve met to date. When visiting them in their home or enjoying any kind of hospitality, the first thing a visitor will receive is a cup of Moroccan Mint Tea. Even on the hottest days of summer, this piping hot tea is a comforting delight. To me, this tea represents friendship and kindness and is a reminder that all humans, from everywhere, can find connection through something as simple as a good cup of tea.
This is one of my very favorite teas. It a green tea, brewed with sprigs of mint leaves in the pot and heaps of sugar. It is supposed to be enjoyed outrageously hot and decadently sweet. The tea leaves are rinsed before the first brew and then steeped 5-7 minutes with the mint leaves and sugar is then added.
This is the perfect taste of Morocco!
Enjoy! Best wishes!
