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. :)
This tea is so lovely, sweet and refreshing! A brilliant way to finish a hearty moroccan feast.
Very good tea! I used about 13 sprigs of mint and two bags of green tea. Thank you for posting this wonderful refreshing drink, I really liked it.
Thank you for this great and authentic recipe!
Reviwed for ZWT3. This tea was terrific! I am married to a North African and we drink mint tea all the time. I usually put the mint & teain a pan of boiling water for a minute before transferring to the tea pot. I ALWAYS mix in the sugar using a tea glass and pour the tea at least twice into a glass (from as high up as you can get!). I used half dry and half fresh mint as this gives a more powerfull flavour. An excellent recipe for anyone to use!
Just thought I would add my thumbs up for this tea. I have to confess that I have been a little confused as to how big a "sprig" of mint is. I've made this tea several times now, with various sized sprigs (sometimes snipping just the top two leaves, sometimes, the top four leave. All my attempts have been praised as very good! So, thanks for a new treat that my whole family has been enjoying occassionally. It was especially appreciated by my son when he had a sore throat!
This is just like the tea a Morrocan friend frequently prepares for us on special occasions. So soothing and tasty - a dessert in itself. The technique was wonderful and made the difference as I've tried to replicate and was unable to do so until now. Thanks for a preview of my upcoming trip to Fez. If I close my eyes, sipping this takes me there. :) I used Splenda instead of sugar. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.
When we were in Morocco last winter, we fell in love with this wonderful drink, which was served up every morning and evening! This recipe is really authentic and should bring a lot of pleasure to anyone who tries it.
