In an attempt to use up the massive amount of mint I purchased at the Farmer’s Market last week, I decided to make homemade Moroccan Mint Tea to go with the Moroccan Lentil Soup.
This was so simple I was shocked that it never before occurred to me to make mint tea from fresh leaves.
Essentially I just boiled water, added some mint leaves, let it steep, then added sugar.
This Moroccan Mint Tea was so delicious I drank four cups and then couldn’t sleep because of the sugar. It complimented my soup perfectly and was wonderfully refreshing. Plus, it was a great way to use up some of those mint leaves!
This is definitely going to become a regular thing at our house.
Here’s the Recipe!
- 4 Cups water
- 20 mint leaves
- 3 Tbsp. Sugar
- Boil water.
- Reduce to simmer, add mint leaves, wait five minutes.
- Strain mint leaves.
- Add sugar, stir, pour into cups.
- Drink it.
