Moroccan Mint Tea – the Madura way!
What you need
3 x Madura Green Tea and Mint teabags (increase or decrease depending upon your personal choice)
2 tablespoons sugar (adjust taste to suit your personal preference)
A handful of fresh mint
5/6 cups boiling water
Pour a small amount of boiled water in your favourite Moroccan teapot – swish around to warm pot.
Add the teabags directly to the teapot. In a separate kettle, boil a pot of water. Add one cup of boiling water to the Moroccan teapot and let tea steep for 3 minutes.
Pour the tea into a glass and set aside.
Add another cup of boiling water to the Moroccan teapot. Swish around the teapot in a circular motion for 5 seconds and discard.
Add fresh mint, sugar and first glass of tea back into Moroccan teapot, then fill with remaining boiling water. Place the Moroccan teapot on the stove over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and pour one glass of tea. Pour this glass back into the teapot to mix. Repeat two more times. This helps with dissolving and distributing the sugar.
Pour the tea from high above each glass to create froth. If you do not have at least a little foam on the top of the first glass, then pour it back into the teapot and try again until the tea starts to foam up nicely.
Garnish with a couple mint leaves and serve and serve with your favourite delights.
