adjust to taste; add more if you like very sweet
Add the loose tea directly to your Moroccan teapot.
In a separate kettle, boil a pot of water.
Add one cup of boiling water to the Moroccan teapot.
Let the tea steep for 30 seconds. Pour the tea into a glass and set aside.
Add another cup of boiling water to the Moroccan teapot. Swish around the teapot in a circular motion for 5 seconds. Pour the tea into a glass and discard.
Add the mint, sugar, and first glass of tea back into Moroccan teapot, then fill with boiling water.
Place the Moroccan teapot on the stove over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and pour one glass of tea. Pour this glass back into the teapot to mix. Repeat two more times.
Pour the tea from high above each glass to create a froth.
Garnish with a couple mint leaves (optional) and serve.
