Did you know that traditionally Moroccan Mint Tea is just filled with refined sugars? Personally, we love our tea plain. No milk, no sugar just the plain tea so you can taste the depth of flavor in the tea.

As we are gearing up for the New Year, adding Healthy Moroccan Mint Tea into your diet has many health benefits. It is the cold and flu season. Mint contains menthol which can open up your sinuses and help you breath and open up that stuffy nose. The Chinese Gunpowder Green tea has powerful antioxidants that can help prevent cancer cells from forming. Mint can also help settle the stomach and indigestion after a rich meal. However, if you suffer from GERD you should avoid this tea as both the caffeine and mint can inflame GERD symptoms. Healthy Moroccan Mint Tea has also been known to help clear up face blemishes and relieve aches and pains.

However, the one reason why you are going to want to try this super easy beverage is because it tastes fantastic and is so relaxing. It gives you a sense of euphoria. We love drinking this cuppa hot but in the hot summer months can be enjoyed over ice.

Did you know this tea has only 3 ingredients; hot water, fresh mint leaves and Chinese gunpowder green tea? How easy is that!

Do you know why they call this type of tea “gunpowder”green tea? It is because the leaves of this green tea are rolled into the shape of little pinhead pellets resembling gunpowder. Gunpowder green is higher in caffeine than most other green teas so it will help you stay focused and improve your alertness.

You can get many steeps from this brew. Usually, at least 4-5 steeps, depending on your tea quality. With the New Year upon us it will be time to start sorting, cleaning and organizing. You are going to need a cup of motivation or two to get you moving. Cheers!

Healthy Moroccan Mint Tea

Healthy Moroccan Mint Tea is a healthy twist on the sugar laden recipe with fresh mint leaves and organic gunpowder green tea. Simply fresh and delicious!

  • Cook: 5 mins
  • Yields: 4-5 steeps for 4 serving cups

Ingredients

Chinese Gunpowder green tea – 2 heaping tablespoon whole leaf

Hot water – 1 pot (as you will need to rinse your tea and you can get several steeps from this tea)

Fresh spearmint leaves – 1 handful- washed and roughly torn

Directions

1Place your gunpowder green tea into your tea pot with built in strainer. Pour enough hot water over your tea leaves to cover. Leave it set for a moment to rinse and allow the tea leaves to open. Discard this tea water. Repeat the process again.

2Place the slightly torn spearmint leaves in your tea pot on top of the rinsed gunpowder green tea. Pour your hot water over the tea and steep for 2.5 minutes and pour to serving cups. (if you must have your tea sweet, then at this point in time you would add your sugar to taste, then mix by pouring high from one tea pot to another – about 5 times to mix well)

3Garnish with additional mint leaves, if desired.

4Enjoy!

  • Mint tea is a wonderful way to finish a meal, I also find it really helps to clean the pallet and help digest your food.

    • Mint Tea is lovely. Loads of health benefits and leaves your breath cool and clean. Take Care

    This looks like such a nice update on the traditional Moroccan mint tea! I do know about the sugar — and yikes, they do use a lot of sugar in this! WAY too much, imo. This looks much, much better. Thanks!

    It is freezing here and this tea is the perfect thing to warm us up! Happy holidays to you and your family Bobbi! Have a wonderful time!

    • OMG…we totally understand we have been under snow advisory for days now… and so frigid. A pot of tea is always brewing.

  • Love the ceremony of tea. Sometimes, a good cup or two of tea (or coffee) can be dessert enough. Great way to end a meal. Happy Holidays to you and yours! May 2018 be full of happiness, good health, and peace!

    • Thank you Monica. Wishing you and your family a super 2018 too!

  • Mint tea is one of my favorite beverages. I drink it all the time. I have to try it mixed with green tea.
