Moroccan Mint Tea Recipe

In this article, I will explain to you how to make the famous Moroccan tea that is sold in the most luxurious markets of Turkey. Moroccans make tea quite sweet. It's as sweet as the Turkish sweets and candies. In a small teapot, they usually insert 4 pieces of sugar cubes. I believe if you drink a lot of Moroccan tea it might give you diabetes. But you can decide how sweet you would like to be so don't worry.

The Moroccan teapot is a bit different than the Turkish teapot. In Turkey, we have two teapots on top of each other while in Morocco they only have one.


What You'll Need

  1. Green tea and its dried bud (sold together in the same pocket)
  2. One cube of sugar
  3. Fresh mint


First, you fill the teapot with water then boil.

When the water boils, you put 4 green tea teaspoons and 1 or 2 teaspoons of it's dried bud.



After that, you add sugar according to your preference. For me, one cube of sugar is enough.


There was one thing that caught my attention is that Moroccan people do not mix the sugar cube with a spoon to melt. Instead, they pour the tea in the teacup then they pour back again inside the teapot. They repeat this 5 to 6 times. I wondered why do they do that because for me, mixing it with a spoon is just more practical, faster, cleaner, and takes less effort. So, my advice to you to just mix it with a spoon. :)

Later on, just wait for your tea to brew.


Lastly, there is mint. You can add it after the mint is brewed or you can place it before with tea with the water was boiling it's totally up to you.

One more thing I noticed was that when Moroccan pour the tea they hold the teapot too high from the teacup in order t create a foam on the surface of the cup.
