How to Properly Prepare Moroccan Mint

Use an electric tea kettle with a temperature setting if possible. Just under the boiling point is perfect at 206°F.

STEP 2: Warm up the teapot.

STEP 4: Cover teapot and steep for 3-5 minutes.

STEP 5: Strain tea sachet and pour the tea into a teacup.

Pour strained tea sachet into a teacup and then if desired, add milk, sugar, or lemon.
