  1. Bring a kettle of water to a boil. Add boiling water to a teapot that holds about 4 cups water, and swirl to warm. Discard the water and add the tea, 24 mint leaves, and sugar to the teapot. Pour the quart of boiling water into the teapot and swirl once or twice to dissolve the sugar. Allow the tea to steep for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour the tea through a strainer into small decorative Moroccan glasses or teacups. Garnish each with several fresh mint leaves.

I almost forgot to review this! I made it at about mid-morning and it just hit the spot perfectly. I very recently picked up a good supple of mint for our ZWT9 trip to Morocco/Tunisia. I used a bit of Splenda and fully enjoyed Morocco's national beverage.

Mine was super minty because I use my David's Tea North African Mint green tea along with the mint leave! I knew I had nice breath after that! Made for ZWT 9.

Yum, I love mint tea and enjoyed it with the green tea. I drank this warm, then added ice to have cold later. Thanks! Made for ZWT 2013.
