Moroccan Mint Tea

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.

A delicious homemade Moroccan Mint Tea recipe to go with any Moroccan dish, including our Moroccan Lentil Soup.

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.

  1. How can a cup (one serving) of mint tea have 42 grams of protein?

    I love mint tea, was looking for some moroccan ideas and came across your blog.

    Cheers

  2. I discovered fresh mint leaf tea when they served it to me at Café Gratitude. It was soooo good! I’ve been thinking about making it since then, but still haven’t done it. Thanks to your post, I’m now inspired. Celeste 🙂
