I’m always in the mood for a refreshing drink that doesn’t contain a ton of sugar. Lately I’ve been sippin’ on this awesome Iced Moroccan Mint tea. Its healthy, only slightly sweet and is equally delicious served iced or hot. Move over fancy coffee shop drinks; this Iced Moroccan Mint Tea recipe will definitely become a new fave.
