My version is based on Moroccan tea, which has the same combination of green tea, mint and sugar, although in slightly different proportions. If you want to be really pedantic you can insist on using Moroccan oranges too.
4 good-sized oranges
150 g brown sugar
150 ml water
a large bunch of mint
½ a teaspoon of green tea
- Zest one of the oranges, peel all of them, slice as thinly as possible, and arrange in a shallow bowl.
- In a pan, combine the sugar, water, mint and orange zest. Heat gently until the sugar is dissolved, bring to a boil, add the tea, and remove from heat.
- Pour the liquid from the pan over the oranges, using a tea strainer to ensure you don't get any bits of mint, zest or tea on the oranges.
