All around the world Moroccan mint tea is probably the most famous emblem of Morocco. Everyone knows about it and loves it, but making it remains a mystery.
For Moroccans, mint tea is as important as earl grey is for the British and green tea is for the Chinese. We serve it at any time of the day with sweet and savoury foods; it’s kind of always tea o’clock in Morocco.
The ingredients are fresh mint, sugar, water and gunpowder tea. Gunpowder tea is a type of green Chinese tea in which each leaf has been rolled into a small round pellet. When the round pellets are hydrated they become surprisingly large, take a look it, it’s fun!
I could go on and on about Moroccan tea, it is refreshing, versatile, robust… But, the truth it’s simply delicious.
