    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Hot mint tea is a favorite in Morocco, where it's served in small glasses any time of day or night. It's very sweet and packed with mint flavor. It is great cold as well; let the tea cool completely and then strain it into ice-filled glasses.

      This was fresh and delicious! The color was such a lovely golden; really made it appetizing. I changed the recipe a bit by basically making 1/3 of the batch. I used 1 cup of mint, 2 cups of water, 1 teabag (which I took out after the 3 minutes to prevent bitterness) and NO sugar. Instead, I added a teaspoon of honey to each teacup (made 4 servings, just like recipe said) and that was plenty sweet and flavorful to me. I can't wait to serve this to friends! Thanks!

      Mr JB loves his Sweet Tea, and says that tea without sugar is "unfulfilled". Unfortunately, he can't have black tea or a lot of sugar anymore. This recipe works well for him as iced tea, provided I substitute a tablespoon of honey for all that sugar. Gives it just enough sweet to notice. Will have to increase my mint crop to meet demand.
