How to make Moroccan mint tea. (recipe)
We have had a number of emails this week about making Moroccan mint tea and so Sannae has this to say:
The art of tea making Moroccan style is not complex and the results delicious.
For the traditional basic recipe, you require a reasonable sized metal tea pot that can be heated on a stove or simply a pot. Bring around a pint of water to the boil and add half a handful of green tea leaves (gunpowder tea is excellent)and several sugar lumps according to taste. Bring the water to the boil again and then remove from the heat while you place a large sprig of mint ( or a couple of cups of leaves) into the water. Bring to the boil again then remove from the heat and let set for a couple of minutes.
Pour one tea glass full of tea and then return it to the pot. Repeat this a couple of times. Now the tea is ready. Pour each glass from high enough above the glass to cause the tea to foam a little.
There are many variations on this but basically it is up to you. Enjoy!
