Oh how I love this tea. You see, I’m not normally a tea drinker. Tea has just never been my thing, especially warm tea. I want to love it, but I just don’t. Or well, I didn’t…until I started making iced tea and adding in lots of lemon. Once I started drinking my tea cold, I really began to love it. Traditionally, Moroccan tea is served warm, but I decided to make an iced version, with a hint of lemon and topped off with just a little sparkling water for some fizzy action. It’s super refreshing and perfect for a sunny day.

If you’re serving up this tea for bunch, you can add a splash of vodka if you like for a boozier version!
