Moroccan Mint Tea Recipe

Moroccan mint tea, also known as “atay b nahna,” is a delightful blend of green tea, fresh mint, and sugar. Here’s a traditional recipe:


  • 1 bunch fresh mint (about 1 cup packed)
  • 2-3 teaspoons green tea leaves (or 2-3 green tea bags)
  • 4 cups water
  • Sugar, to taste


  1. Rinse the mint leaves under cold water.
  2. In a teapot, place the mint leaves and the green tea leaves (or tea bags).
  3. In a separate pot, bring the water to a boil.
  4. Pour the boiling water into the teapot over the mint and tea.
  5. Let the tea steep for about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Add sugar to taste (traditional Moroccan mint tea is quite sweet, so you may want to start with 1-2 tablespoons and adjust to your preference).
  7. Stir the tea to dissolve the sugar.
  8. Pour the tea through a strainer into glasses or cups. This will remove the tea leaves and any small pieces of mint.
  9. Serve hot and enjoy!

Moroccan mint tea is often poured from a height into the glass to create a frothy top. This tea is typically served in small glasses and enjoyed slowly with friends and family as a symbol of hospitality.
