This beautiful recipe had been placed here for play in ZWT9 - Morocco, found on website:

Bring the exotic and aromatic flavors of Morocco to your kitchen table with this wonderful tea.

Mint tea is Morocco’s staple drink, found on every street corner and café being poured out of a silver jug into tea glasses.

Be sure to lift the teapot high above the cup while pouring. To give it that authentic citrus flavor, the secret ingredient is dried verbena leaves.

Please Note: Please use 1 tbsp dried verbena leaves in recipe, as noted in directions. Thank you.
