Moroccan Mint Tea

Are you trying to stop drinking soda? This drink is a nice alternative and is much lower in sugar and the perfect beverage for a picnic on a warm summer day.

You’ll Need

  • 8 cups water
  • 6 green tea bags
  • Approximately 1 1/2 cups (up to 2 cups) fresh mint leaves, slightly ripped (to help release flavor)
  • 3 Tablespoon of sugar (start with this amount and then the next time you make it see if 2 1/2 Tablespoons is sufficient). 
Directions
  • In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Remove from heat and mix in sugar until dissolved. Add the mint and tea bags and steep for approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove tea bags and let cool. Once cooled strain out mint leaves and store in a container. Place in fridge.
  • Let chill for several hours. When serving,  serve over ice garnished with mint leaves.

 

Variations
  • Try using black tea
  • Add a splash of lemon
  • Use honey instead of sugar
