Moroccan Mint Tea

Serves 6
Time 15 min
Combine green tea, mint leaves and a hearty dose of sugar to make this traditional Moroccan beverage. It's inspired by our Whole Planet Foundation® microcredit client recipes.
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons loose green tea leaves or 5 green tea bags
  • 1 bunch fresh spearmint leaves, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/3 cup sugar or 1/4 cup agave nectar, plus more to taste
Method

Bring 8 cups water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. 

Turn off water and add tea. Cover and steep 4 to 5 minutes. 

Add mint to the pot. Cover and steep 5 minutes more. 

Add sugar and stir to combine. Strain and serve. 

Garnish with a mint sprig.

To serve chilled, allow the tea to reach room temperature, then transfer to a pitcher, cover and refrigerate until cold. Serve in a tall glass with ice and a mint sprig for garnish.
