Hot is good but iced is divine. Flavour-lifting sugar is a must for an authentic Moroccan experience. And a garnish of fresh mint plays with this tea like magic.
Dainty tea glasses on a decorative tea tray. Pour small amounts of tea at a time, keeping the rest hot in the teapot. Then just keep the tiny refills flowing. Serve from a Moroccan teapot (barrad), designed for the accuracy needed to pour from a great height. This both aerates the tea and impresses your guests!
Pairs Well With
Enjoy Moroccan mint on its own or with your favourite cookies. We recommend traditional gazelle horn (kaab al ghazzal), ghriba and fekka cookies for a true cultural experience.
Magical and impossible to pin down, tea time can pop up morning and afternoon… and anytime in between. Although the evening is only for those souls who can handle a late-night caffeine buzz.

½ – 1 tsp per cup
3 – 5 min

Brew it the traditional Moroccan way
Boil freshly drawn ambient water in a teakettle to 100°C;. Add ½ tsp of tea per cup to a stovetop teapot. Rinse the tea leaves by filling enough hot water to cover. Swirl and strain. Repeat up to 3 times to reduce the green tea’s strength. Add a handful of fresh mint sprigs to the pot, followed by the hot water. Sweeten to taste. If sweetening with sugar, boil the tea on the stovetop for 1 min for a greater depth of flavour. Steep covered for 5 – 10 min. To serve, pour the tea from a height into your cup/s. Next, return this tea to the pot. Finally, pour the tea back into your cup/s from a height for further aeration and to create bubbles, ready for drinking. For best results, use a Moroccan teapot (barrad) which is designed to pour with accuracy. Impress guests with patterned tea glasses served on a decorative tea tray. Enjoy on its own or with traditional cookies such as gazelle horns (kaab al ghazzal), ghriba and fekkas.
