Mint Tea

This is a Marroccan tea. In Morocco the tea is usually prepared in a special teapot. After the tea brews a little, some is poured back and forth between the pot and and a glass, a procedure that is said to improve the brewing process. When ready, the tea is poured from a height of one to two feet into the small glasses. 


4 bags of green tea
1 cup packed fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup sugar
3 cups boiling water

Place the tea bags, fresh mint leaves and sugar in teapot. Pour the 3 cups of boiling water and stir to dissolve the sugar. Let steep for 4 minutes and serve. 
If you prefer ice tea let it cool down, add ice, garnish with fresh mint and a lemon slice. Your mint tea just turned in the perfect beverage on a hot summer day.
