mint tea
 
1   rounded teaspoon green tea
5 tsp  sugar (granulated)
12 - 14 large  fresh mint leaves
1 cup  water
1 sprig  of mint per glass to be served
 
mix tea and sugar. crush mint leaves in water. bring to boil. pour 
over tea and sugar. let steep for 5 minutes. place small sprig of mint 
in two thick 4-ounce juice glasses. strain tea into glasses. drink 
while hot. 
 
the man i watched make this tea in lebanon used one of the small brass 
coffeemakers so common in the middle east. he boiled the mint leaves, 
tea and sugar over his charcoal fire. then he strained this over the 
sprigs of mint in the glass. i also watched a man do it this way in 
morocco, so if you want to be authentic, rather than take an american 
shortcut, that is the method to use.
