mint tea (infusion)

This is a very simplified version of the sweet and more complicated mint teas of North Africa. Great for the digestion and really easy to make.


  • handful of mint leaves and stalks (I use black peppermint)
  • boiling water


  1. Pop your mint leaves and stalks into your teapot, glass or mug.

  2. Pour boiling water over the top and leave to infuse for five minutes.

  3. Pour out into a glass if you used a teapot (transfer some of the mint into you glass too). And savour that lovely minty flavour!


For a more traditional North African mint tea add an equal measure of sugar and gunpowder green tea to the pan as you heat up the water, make sure the leaves stay submerged as the water warms up and stews.
