Green Tea with Mint
Traditional Moroccan green tea with mint is typically drunk sweet - very, very sweet. This is because they use Gunpowder Green, a tea so strong that sugar is needed to remove the astringency. We opted for a more delicate chunmee green tea known as Precious Eyebrows. Better to change the base tea than your teeth, we reckoned.
how does it taste?
A delicate green tea known as "precious eyebrows" blended with peppermint leaves for that traditional Moroccan experience.
good if you're feeling
Rough on the inside and even worse on the outside; green tea and mint are a great cure-all.
how we like it
We like to drink it pure but for that real North African experience add sugar, heaps and heaps of sugar.
Just cover one tea temple with water at 80 degrees C and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water. Spoon in some sugar.
- 1 tea temple per person. brew for 3+ minutes, best with water at 80 degrees C. (If you don't have a fancy kettle or thermometer to hand, grabbing the kettle just before it boils will do the trick!)
Whole leaves take longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it.
