Moroccan Mint Tea

August 21st, 2023 Drink of the Week

This is straightforward to make but taking care with the preparation is very important (according to the many recipes I consulted online!). Enjoy it hot straight from the pot or cool over ice cubes the next day.


A handful of fresh mint
2 green teabags (approx 3 tsp tea)
Sweetener to taste (I used 2 tbsp white sugar but you could use any sugar or add a little honey or agave)
4 cups boiling water


* Boil the water and put a small amount into your teapot, swishing it around to warm the pot
* Add in the mint, green tea & sweetener, then top with the remaining hot water
* Leave to brew for 3 minutes while you set out your glasses/cups
* Fill just one glass with tea then pour it back into the pot – repeat this a couple of times to get the blend going and dissolve the sugar
* Pour out all the glasses
* Garnish with a little more fresh mint

Sober Story: David


"I wasn’t really interested in maintaining any of my friendship networks unless alcohol was involved but even then I’d prefer seclusion when drinking rather than social occasions in public venues."
