Say hello to the perfect refreshing warm weather tea.
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!

- 1. Bring the 4-5 cups water to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the tea. Cover and steep 5 minutes. Stir in the mint, cover and steep another 5 minutes. Strain the tea into a pitcher and stir in the honey, to taste, and the lemon juice. Chill until cold.2. Serve the tea over ice, top with sparkling water, and a splash vodka, if using. Garnish with pomegranate arils and fresh mint.
Fresh mint makes the best tea! Try adding it to black teas, like English Breakfast or even Earl Grey, for a fragrant twist. The addition of vodka and sparkling water would make this something unique to serve at a summer gathering. Who wouldn’t want that!
Sounds yummy i’ll have to try it!! Always adding booze is great!
I am same as you. I also don’t like to drink much tea but after going through this recipe of making Iced Moroccan Mint Tea, I found that I must try it at least once.
I am thinking about the benefits of drinking this tea, I hope you can add that part as well in your article.
Keep the good work up.
Ah so cool! Thanks so much! Hopefully we can both find the taste for it!
It looks really refreshing, I love iced tea!!
Thanks Ruth (:
