Green Tea with mint is a moroccan tradition of hospitality:

made by steeping green tea with mint leaves, is very popular, and many Moroccans drink it several times throughout the day and evening. Moroccans are famous for their hospitality, and it is Moroccan etiquette to offer tea to any visitors that might stop by. Although the tea is usually prepared with a generous amount of spearmint leaves, other herbs such as absinthium or wild mint might be used.

At one time, mint tea was ceremoniously prepared in front of guests. This tradition still takes place at some formal occasions.During the tea ceremony, the host or hostess sits before a tray holding decorated glasses and two tea pots. Fresh mint leaves (or other herbs), dried green tea leaves, sugar and boiling water should be nearby.

The host begins by rinsing the tea pots with boiling water. He then then adds the tea leaves to each pot, and rinses the leaves with a little boiling water. The water is discarded.

Sugar is added to the pots and the host fills them with boiling water. The tea steeps for several minutes before being stirred, and then the host fills the tea glasses halfway while pouring simultaneously from both pots. The pouring is usually done from a height of twelve inches or more.
