    Sackville's Note:

    Mint tea isn't just a drink in Morocco. It is a sign of hospitality and friendship and tradition. Because this drink is so popular, it is served all day long, after every meal and with every conversation. Moroccans take great pride in their tea and will often ask a visitor who among their group of friends makes the best cup of mint tea.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 10 sprigs fresh mint, plus extra for garnish
    • 3 teaspoons green tea
    • 3 tablespoons sugar (or more to taste)
    • 4 cups water


    1. 1
      Boil the water and pour a small amount in the teapot, swishing it around to warm the pot.
    2. 2
      Combine the mint and green tea and sugar in the teapot, then fill it with the rest of the hot water.
    3. 3
      Let the tea brew for three minutes.
    4. 4
      Set out glasses for the tea.
    5. 5
      A shot-glass is close to the slender glasses used in Morocco.
    6. 6
      Fill just one glass with the tea, then pour it back in the pot.
    7. 7
    8. 8
      This helps to dissolve and distribute the sugar.
    9. 9
      Pour the tea.
    10. 10
      You want a nice foam on the tea so always pour with the teapot a high distance above the glasses.
    11. 11
      If you do not have at least a little foam on the top of the first glass, then pour it back into the teapot and try again until the tea starts to foam up nicely.
    12. 12
      Garnish with the remaining sprigs of mint.

      I first had this when it was served at a birthday party for my daughters classmate. The parents are from Morocco and offered all the parents this tea. I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. Such a soothing drink and I knew I would make it. So I found this recipe and gave it a whirl. Tasted amazing. I had a cup hot and I also iced mine and loved it. Thank you Sackville for such a lovely recipe.

      What a lovely refreshing light mint tea Sackville. It was quick and easy to make with great results. I really enjoyed using the green tea, as it allowed the mint to shine. I did sweeten it with sugar for a perfect glass of tea. I must confess that I enjoyed it so much, I drank the whole pot myself. What a great use for all the mint in the herb garden. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe, that I will make again. :)
