DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the water and pour a small amount in the teapot, swishing it around to warm the pot.
  • Combine the mint and green tea and sugar in the teapot, then fill it with the rest of the hot water.
  • Let the tea brew for three minutes.
  • Set out glasses for the tea.
  • A shot-glass is close to the slender glasses used in Morocco.
  • Fill just one glass with the tea, then pour it back in the pot.
  • Repeat.
  • This helps to dissolve and distribute the sugar.
  • Pour the tea.
  • You want a nice foam on the tea so always pour with the teapot a high distance above the glasses.
  • 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.
  • Garnish with the remaining sprigs of mint.
