Stylish Moroccan Tea

Morrocan mint tea isn't just an ordinary tea.
It's a sign of hosipitality, friendship and tradition.
As this tea is very popular, it's served after every meal and at every occassion.
They take a lot of pride in making the best tea, they will even talk among them selves
who makes the best mint tea. And for some Moroccan ladies, this is something they could
boost about!

I would like to share with you an easy Moroccan Mint Tea, which was taught to me by a
Moroccan friend.

Moroccan Tea

10 spings of Fresh Mint (plus extra for garnish)
3 tablespoons of green tea
3 tablespoons sugar
4 cups water

(1) Boil the water and pour a small amount in the teapot (Moroccan tea pots are very pretty and are nice to have! Check some of the photos from below.)

(2) Add the mint, green tea and sugan together in the teapot, then fill it with the rest of the hot water

(3) Let the tea brew for 3 minutes

(4) Set out glasses for the tea. (again, see below the lovely little tea glasses they the future, I would like to design some too..)

(5) Fill only one glass with th tea and pour it back in the pot

(6) Repeat (5) again. This helps to dissove and to mix the sugar

(7) Pour the tea
     (pouring the tea is also unique in Morocco. You pour them at a high distance into your glass, and you fill in only half of the cup. Never serve a full glass, as they don't think it's esthetically beautiful. Moroccans pour in the tea from a great distance to create a foam on the surface of the tea.

(8) Finally, garnish with the remaining leaves of mint.


Moroccan tea glasses could be not only used as drinking tea, but it very much could be a part of your interior...use your imagination, and it could be used as a candle holder, flower vase etc...the ideas are yours!
