Moroccan Mint Tea

Moroccans love their mint tea,  which they sip throughout the day in cafes and souks (marketplaces). It is usually served at home at the end of a meal or with sweets.

Moroccan Mint Tea is made with Chinese Gunpowder Tea, which got its name from the popping noise the tightly-rolled leaf pellets made when infused. Here is a simple recipe that you can try at home.
