Moroccan Mint Iced Tea

Everyone I know is going somewhere exotic and paradisiac this summer – except me. 


We all have places we dream of visiting one day.  One of those places for me is Morocco. I’d love to explore the public markets, buy a handmade tagine and enjoy some of the local cuisine. Ahhh. Doesn’t that sound exciting? 

Unfortunately a trip to Morocco is not in the plans this summer unless I either win the lottery or sell one of my kidneys in the black market. Yeah, I don’t think either of those is happening any time soon. But, who says I can’t bring Morocco to me?

This tea has very interesting flavours that go very well together. You get some freshness from the mint, a hint of bitterness from the green tea and delicious sweetness from the honey. It is to die for. This is what I call taking tea to the next level.

I have the cold version here, but feel free to skip the ice if it is not as hot where you live as it is here on the West Coast.

      Thank you, Joanne! I wouldn’t mind going on the actually trip, though ;)
      By the way, Joanne, I nominated you for a Liebster Award if you’re interested in participating. It’d be fun to read a few random facts about you. Sorry if that sounds a little stalker-ish. Haha!

      Yup. It’s that simple, Nagi. Shocking, isn’t it? I had always loved Moroccan mint tea but always thought it would require some exotic tea leaves or something to make. I then got a Moroccan roommate when I was in college and she taught me how to make it. So glad I met her :)

      Aren’t iced teas the best, Gayle? This tea and hibiscus iced tea are probably my favourites. Let me know how it turns out :)
