Flavorful Mint Green Tea Recipe

Mint green tea is considered as a traditional symbol of friendship and warmth in Morocco. Apart from its immense health benefits, the magical aroma and the light sweet taste of the beverage makes it highly popular throughout the country as well as the whole world. I‘ve added a twist to this recipe by using tulsi-flavored green tea. It makes the concoction even more flavorful.

Tips:

  • Tulsi-flavored green tea is my personal preference. It makes me refreshed like nothing else. But you can use any other flavored green tea of your choice too.
  • It is always good to go for organic green tea as it is much healthier than its non-organic counterpart.
  • Try to pick short mint sprigs that have lesser stem and more leaves. Also, they must be absolutely fresh.
  • Sugar is essential in this tea recipe. If you want to skip it, just go for sugar cubes.
