You can barely take a step in the markets of Marrakech without tripping over fresh mint, or at least without being offered a glass of hot, sweet mint tea.
Steeped with a never-ending number of spearmints—has become symbolic not only of Moroccan cuisine but also of Moroccan hospitality and culture.
Mint tea is the go-to-drink in Marrakech! Inspired by the UK, Moroccan mint tea is made with black tea leaves, fresh mint, boiling water and oodles amounts of sugar. The tea traditionally gets poured from a height so that it has a frothy head on it.
Before receiving a cup (or three) of this Tea, however, an almost ritualistic Tea-preparing “ceremony” must take place.
Patience will be required here as hosts adhere to the saying, “Insha Allah,” which in this context means, “with God willing,” all good things come with time.
