Moroccan Mint Tisane
I began watching “The Meaning of Tea” tonight. There was a lot of footage from Morocco, and the sweet mint tisane they refer to as “tea” there. I’ve had Mint Tea before, and it was always just “okay” but what I saw in the film intrigued me. I literally paused the film, ran outside into the garden, pulled out a ton of mint, came inside — and brewed it up with a lot of sugar. And it was AMAZING. I re-enacted the events and photographed them for your viewing pleasure:

I'm writing a full-length book on tea. No history, just practical tea information and SCIENCE!
