Tea time ideas: moroccan mint tea
If there’s a more refreshing tea choice than a cup of Moroccan tea, we’ve yet to find it. Across the temperature spectrum, from hot to cold, it’s an invigorating and revitalizing spearmint blast that’s guaranteed to shake up your senses and excite your taste buds. In Morocco it’s served anyplace, anytime, and we couldn’t agree more. Twenty-four hours a day, it makes a delicious alternative to your traditional cup of tea.
If you’re looking for tasty food pairings, we think those crisp, fresh flavors work wonderfully with spicy foods. We suggest brewing up a pot of fresh Moroccan mint tea to go alongside a lively Moroccan meze platter. Think falafel, hummus, pitta, and lots and lots and lots of hot chili sauce.
