Tasty, refreshing, light and lively, sweet, antioxidant rich and anti-inflammatory Moroccan mint tea

This is not a nutritional blog so I won’t go into too much detail about this tea’s wonderful nutritional properties. But green tea and mint are quite known for their anti-inflammatory properties, as well as high levels of antioxidants.

All of that aside, this tea is simply delicious and is my absolute favourite tea. Remember that green tea contains caffeine and if you are sensitive to it, consider replacing it with something that is caffeine-free.

Hope you give it a try!

Yields4 Servings

 1 bag of green tea (or about a tablespoon of loose green tea leaves)
 half a bunch of fresh mint
 4 cups hot water
 2 tbsp honey, or more to taste

1

Combine mint, green tea and honey in a pot or a teapot. Pour hot water over and close the lid. Allow everything to steep for 3-5 minutes.

2

Traditionally, the tea is then poured into a cup then back into the pot to dissolve the sugar.

However, you can simply stir the contents of the pot together until the honey is dissolved. Taste your tea. It should be flavourful, minty and sweet. Add more honey if desired. Divide between cups and enjoy.
