I love mint tea. I love mint itself. I am obsessed with it. I grow several mint patches in my garden. My first sip of moroccan mint tea was actually at a restaurant in Hong Kong. My husband took me there for our four year anniversary and the food was amazing. After dinner, a small silver tea pot appeared on our table with an even smaller glass tea cup. The tea was intoxicating. I was instantly addicted and need more, more, just a little more. Since then I have been on the quest to make the perfect cup of moroccan mint tea. Last summer I even bought a species of mint called moroccan. My winning combo is a lemon grass and green tea bag steeped with a large, very large handful of mint leaves from my garden (stems and all), and a generous helping of maple syrup. Beautiful. It even tastes good with out the green tea.
Now that I have been to Morocco and tasted a variety of mint teas, very few of quality, I have come to realize I like my moroccan mint tea the best. I know it's organic and pure. Most of the "mint tea" in morocco is actually low quality green tea, very bitter, with a few fresh mint leaves thrown in for good measure and copious amounts of white sugar to make it taste like something.
One thing I did learn was to add orange water to give that certain -I-don't-know-what-zing.
On a different note, the oranges in Morocco were amazing.
