TEA TIME: Marrakech Minted Iced Tea

Marrakech Minted Tea is the traditional beverage of choice in Morocco. Made in small metal pots right on the streets of Morocco, Marrakech tea is the perfect balance of green tea and mint. This tea will create it's own foam if poured from high heights.

You will need:

12 ice cubes
6 green tea bags or 4 tbsp green tea leaves in a sachet
