Warming Moroccan Lemon Tea

Warming Moroccan Lemon Tea

While walking the streets of Beirut during my recent trip to Lebanon, I saw an old man, sipping on a Moroccan tea. I stopped by a little bodega and asked the guy how to make one. And I was pleasantly surprised to see how easy it was to make it. It was as simple as steeping fresh spearmint in hot water, so say no to buy prepackaged tea bags!

This tea is soothing for the soul, and a touch of lemon adds just a right amount of zing to the drink. Naturally decaffeinated, and absolutely tasty. It’s a perfect way to end your long day with a hot cup of tea.
