In Morocco, tea is an art of living and one of the most original traditions.

For all occasions, the Moroccan offers tea with mint wherever you are and at any time of the day. It is the drink of hospitality. It is also credited with a large number of virtues, especially tonic and digestive.

It is sweeter in the north than in the south of Morocco.

Mint can be substituted with absinthe (chiba) or verbena (louisa) and, in spring, by orange blossom. We can also add pine nuts (like in Tunisia)… Unlike cooking, tea is a business of men in Morocco. Prepared by the head of the family or his eldest son, he is served to the guest and does not refuse.

Steps

1
Done

Heat the water in a kettle. Rinse the mint with cool water and peel it.

2
Done

Rinse the teapot with boiling water then drop the tea.
Cover with boiling water, shake the teapot and discard this water, greenish and cloudy: this rinsing removes some of the bitterness of the tea.

3
Done

Add the mint leaves and sugar cubes to the teapot. Fill the teapot with boiling water, without letting the mint rise to the surface so that it does not blacken. Mix the contents of the teapot. Put back on the heat (mint tea supports a few broths).

4
Done

Remove from the heat, cover, and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes.

5
Done

Oxygenate the tea: pour a little tea into a glass, wait 1 or 2 minutes then pour it back into the teapot. Repeat this operation two
or three times. Taste and adjust sugar if needed. Serve and enjoy the very hot mint tea.
