  • Put green tea leaves in the teapot (a Moroccan teapot or a heat-resistant teapot)
  • Boil water then add 1 cup of the boiling water to the teapot
  • Swish it around to clean the tea leaves to get rid of the strong and sour tea aroma. Pour water in the sink
  • Add the remaining hot water to your teapot and tea leaves
  • Add the sugar and place the teapot on the stove on medium heat. Let it boil for 1 to 3 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea
  • Add the fresh mint branches and make sure they are all covered with water, otherwise, they will turn black and will leave your tea with a bitter taste
  • Let everything boil for another 2 to 3 minutes, until liquid starts foaming slightly
  • Turn down immediately and take aside. If you are using a Moroccan teapot, be careful as it can get extremely hot. Make sure you wrap the handle with a cotton cloth
  • Add the orange blossom water
  • Serve hot with some pastries, almonds or biscuits
