Green tea is a popular beverage in North Africa. It is high in antioxidants and the mint is soothing and refreshing. Traditionally, the tea is sweetened heavily, but it is still delicious with just a little raw honey added. Serve it warm or chilled for a refreshing and health supportive drink. Here is a recipe courtesy of Bauman College in Berkeley, the school I currently attend for Holistic Nutrition.
6 cups water
2 Tbs loose green tea leaves
2 large bunches fresh mint, reserve ½ a bunch for garnishing
Add raw honey to taste
2. Re-heat the tea before serving and stir in the honey to taste. (Or you can serve the honey on the side and let people sweeten to their liking.)
3. To serve, put some of the reserved fresh mint at the bottom of each small glass and then pour in the tea.
