Moroccan Mint Tea
This tea is traditionally served very sweet. I have reduced the sugar content but if you prefer even less sugar you can use an artificial sweetener. The tea has a lovely minty fragrance. Green tea is rich in antioxidants to protect against heart disease, and peppermint is beneficial for an irritable bowel. You can also use decaffeinated tea leaves.
- 2 TBSP sugar
- 1 bunch of mint, stalks tied
- 2 green tea bags
- 4 mint leaves reserved for garnishing
- Bring one litre of water to the boil in a saucepan and dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat.
- Add the mint and tea bags. Cover with lid and allow the tea to brew for about 10 minutes.
- Remove the tea bags and mint.
- Place a mint leaf in each cup and pour the tea. Enjoy!
