Preparation of Moorish tea with mint

Mint tea or Moorish tea is, by far, one of the most popular drinks in many Arab countries.

It is curious that in hot areas this drink is so hot. To our surprise, after a moment the sensation of heat has disappeared.

On the other hand there is a feeling of well-being. If, on the other hand, you drink a cold drink after a moment, you are even thirstier and start to sweat.

They say that with hot tea and spicy food “your body temperature is equal to the ambient temperature and you notice less heat.”

In many homes they receive you with a tea as a sign of hospitality and it is usually the head of the family or the eldest son who prepares it.

Tips and advice for preparing and drinking Moorish tea

  • In order that the sugar does not become a dough and while the ingredients are mixed well, the tea is poured into the glasses. They are thrown back into the teapot and again poured into the glasses a second time.It is usually used small cups specially made for tea.
  • The amount of sugar and spearmint goes a little to the taste of each person although in general the dose of sugar is usually generous.
  • Although the tea is called peppermint, peppermint is usually used, which has a softer and more aromatic flavor at the same time. Peppermint can be a good substitute if you can not find mint.
  • Do not forget to grab the glass from above, not from the center and take the tea in sips (do not mind making noise). But you can easily burn your mouth because the tea is very hot.
  • Finally, remember that if you drink a second cup, the tea is usually more bitter because it has spent more time in maceration.

Ready! You already know how to prepare this delicious tea that has not in vain gained over the years fame in many countries.
