Orange Blossom Tea
By now, you probably know that we, Moroccans, love to cook with orange blossom water, and try to put it in pretty much anything and everything. Not only that, we are also superstitious about it. We associate it to luck, hospitality and prosperity. We put a few drops of it in a glass of milk shared by the bride and the groom on their wedding day for a happy life together. We fill pretty bottles with it and spritz our guests to make them feel welcome.
We also flavor our tea with orange blossoms. When they are not in season, we use orange blossom water. We love our orange blossom tea. It tastes very floral, a bit like the jasmine tea we’re accustomed to here.
To make orange blossom tea, simply prepare a serving of mint tea and add a few orange blossoms or half teaspoon of orange blossom water.
