Calling this a recipe feels unfair since it is so simple. Can we agree that it is more of an idea? This way of preparing mint tea is hugely popular in the Netherlands.

Recipe Notes

In Morocco, we had a similar mint tea using green tea instead of water. If you have green tea on hand, try it Moroccan style.
