Moroccan iced tea

Get refreshed, Moroccan style. Nothing says summer time like a chill iced tea, especially when it is made based on the original traditional Moroccan mint tea.

If you are a fan of the traditional Moroccan mint tea, you won’t be able to resist its iced version that you can make in a jiff.


8 cups boiling water

1 tablespoon loose Chinese green tea

25 fresh mint sprigs

1/2-cup sugar


Combine water and tea in a medium bowl; cover and steep 2 1/2 minutes.

Strain tea mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl, and discard tea leaves.

Add mint and steep 5 minutes.

Add sugar; stir until sugar dissolves.

Cool completely. Serve over ice. (A few additional leaves of fresh or dried lemon verbena add a lovely citrus flavor).
