Iced Mint Tea
Iced mint tea, made with spearmint, is the traditional drink of Morocco and North Africa. To infuse the tea with the most mint flavor, refrigerate with the mint sprigs. But if you prefer a lighter mint taste, let the sprigs steep for 5 minutes.
A few leaves of fresh or dried lemon verbena add a lovely citrus flavor. Be sure to use Chinese green tea, such as Gunpowder Green, Young Hyson, or Formosa Oolong.
