These past few weeks have opened my eyes, and stomach, to the wonderful world of Moroccan cuisine. While couscous and dates will always hold a special place in my heart, nothing compares to the always delicious Moroccan mint tea.
Though I have been a die-hard coffee fan since early middle school (thanks Mom!) this hot beverage is rivaling for first place in my mind. Drinking it is akin to sipping on a glass of sweet spearmint gum.
The thought of never having it after leaving Morocco was almost too painful to bear, so my roommate Katie and I begged our host mom, Khadija, to give us a lesson.
So, here follows a step-by-step instruction of how to brew Moroccan mint tea. Prepare to taste for yourself and be amazed.
1. Boil water -- I hope you knew this all ready, but I included it just in case.
2. In a teapot, combine a handful of loose green tea, a quart sized bucket of mint leaves, and six HEAPING tablespoons of sugar (it should look like your teapot got caught in a large snowstorm)
3. Pour boiled water into your fancy silver teapot and heat again.
Before long your teapot will be steaming, signaling that you are moments away from enjoying a delicious glass of tea. And if you're lucky, you might even get some cookies thrown in as well!
