Do you prefer Moroccan mint tea or a MysteryTea® mint tea? There are many ways to prepare this delicious drink, but today we are going to focus on two methods: one with traditional Moroccan spices and the other with the MysteryTea® brand mix.
The Moroccan method
The history of mint tea in Morocco dates back to the 16th century, when Moroccan soldiers drank it with cardamom and honey before going into battle.
Mint tea is popular around the world, but is particularly popular in the Maghreb region of North Africa, where it is often served with fresh lemon and sugar
Mint is traditionally used as a herbal remedy for colds, nausea, vomiting, bronchitis, indigestion and headaches. It is also believed to promote relaxation. Moroccan mint tea is served after meals or before sleep if someone has just eaten.
To prepare 4 cups of the traditional Moroccan mint tea, you will need:
- 3 teaspoons of green tea
- Half a bunch of mint
- 5 sugar cubes
1. To prepare Moroccan mint tea, first bring water to a simmer in a saucepan. Pour a glass of boiling water over the tea leaves and steep for 4 minutes before discarding excess liquid. This will remove the bitterness from the tea.
2. Add the mint and sugar to the teapot. Cover with hot water and let steep for 5 minutes. Serve with cupcakes, for example.
The MysteryTea® method
The brand itself was born from a trip to Marrakech and the discovery of the tradition of mint tea. So inevitably, I was very intransigent on the taste quality of our Marrakesh Touch green tea.
To prepare it, simply fill a one-liter teapot with water, then dip in about 12 to 15 grams of Marrakesh Touch green tea.
Steep for 2-3 minutes, and you've got a delicious peppermint green tea ready to drink.
I hope this article has helped you discover the different ways to prepare delicious Moroccan mint tea. There are many ways to prepare traditional Moroccan mint tea, but we have used the most traditional methods. If you've also tried the MysteryTea® brand, I think you'll find it just as tasty.
