Moroccan Mint Tea

The national drink of Morocco is Mint Tea. This drink is served usually before and after every meal in Morocco. It can either be enjoyed hot or cold. 

The Moroccan's don't stir the tea, the way they mix the tea is by pouring in and out of the teapot. The first glass is poured, then tipped back into the teapot to stir/mix the brew. Then from a height, the tea is poured into brightly coloured and patterned tea glasses. 

Mint tea cleanses the palette and has such a refreshing taste. 

What you need:
1 tbs Chinese gunpowder green tea
2 tbs sugar
large handful of mint leaves and stalks
boiling water

How to:
1) Put all the ingredients into a teapot and allow to brew for approx 3-5 minutes.

2) From a height pour into one glass. Then return that glass of tea to the teapot.

3) From a height pour into selected number of tea glasses. If you prefer the tea cold, allow to cool to room temperature and refrigerate before serving.
