Moroccan mint tea

Method

  • Place the tea in a large teapot and pour in 1 cup boiling water. Swish it around and then strain, leaving the tea leaves inside and discarding the liquid. 
  • Then tightly stuff the mint into the teapot and cover with the remaining boiling water. Add the sugar and set aside for about 2 mins until it is dissolved. 
  • Pour out one glass (or cup) of tea and then pour it back into the pot. Repeat the process another two times. 
  • Try the tea before serving to ensure it is well mixed.
