Moroccan Mint Pea Soup


I love soups.  And this soup is so easy to make, while being a much more interesting version of a traditional split pea soup.  I love being able to incorporate our Moroccan MintLapsang Souchong, as well as Lemon Ginger tea into the soup as an extra twist.  Enjoy!  And join us for our brunch this Sunday to taste it!

1 TB olive oil
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 medium white onion, chopped
4 cups Moroccan Mint brewed tea
1 teaspoon Lapsang Souchong tea leaves

1/4 teaspoon ground Lemon Ginger 
1 cup fresh spinach leaves

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
