With the hot weather we are having here in Singapore recently I thought of the good old Moroccan mint tea, which is very cooling. It is not a drink. It is a sign of hospitality and friendship and tradition. Because this drink is so popular, it is served all day long, after every meal and with every conversation. Moroccans take great pride in their tea and will often ask a visitor who among their group of friends makes the best cup of mint tea.

All you need to prepare the delightful drink is green tea, fresh mint leaves, lots of sugar. The secret is in the preparations. Combine the mint and green tea and sugar in the teapot, then fill it with hot water. Let it brew for 3 minutes. Set up small slender glasses. Fill just one glass with tea, then pour it back in the pot. Repeat. This helps dissolve the sugar. Pour the tea from far above to get a nice foam. Garnish with mint.

The flavour of the tea combines so well with the warm Moroccan interiors.
