Moroccan Orange Blossom Tea Recipe

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by CarrolJ

If you're fortunate enough to be able to get fresh orange blossoms, try this fragrant Moroccan tea, as posted, which combines orange blossoms with spearmint. If however orange trees do not grow in your area you could substitute 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of orange extract for the leaves. I wanted to post this recipe with the authenticity of the method used in Morocco but with the substitution for those unable to acquire orange blossoms. The original version of this recipe was found at 'about.com'. Prep time is the time boiling the water. Cook time is the steeping time. Posted for ZWT 2010
