My brother-in-law worked in Morocco for a while figuring out how to grow food in the city of Casablanca. He did figure it out by developing Food Boards that use hydroponics to grow plants on the side of large buildings, it’s a pretty cool concept! But what is even cooler, is that he introduced to me to Moroccan tea. I hope you love mint guys and even if you don’t, you might after trying this tea. The tea is made with green tea, fresh mint and a ton of sugar – it is perfect. So why not take what is perfect and make it into an iced tea kind of perfect?!
A refreshing sweet iced tea with mint!
- 1 l (1 quart) of water
- 1 tea bag green rooibos tea (or regular green tea)
- 1/4 to a 1/3 of a cup of sugar
- 4 springs of fresh mint (more for decorating)
- ice cubes
- Place tea bag, sugar and mint springs into a tea kettle and pour water that has just stopped boiling over it.
- Let seep for 15 minutes and cool to room temperature before moving it into the fridge to cool down even more. (When using regular green tea remove the bag earlier to avoid bitterness, see tea package instructions.).
- Serve with ice cubes and springs of mint.
Just like when making sweet tea that has a lot of sugar in it, don’t be shy to add the sugar or your favorite sugar substitute (anything but artificial sweeteners like splenda and other aspartame containing poisons!!).
Cheers my dears, to this beautiful summer, that after all decided to come to Europe as well 😉
