Morocco: Time for Tea, Time for Friends

December 30, 2014


In many cultures the world over, tea plays a distinct and intricate role in the etiquette of society. Morocco is no different: time spent with friends is time spent over a pot of tea. In fact, not offering friends—or any guests, for that matter—tea is the height of rudeness; it just isn’t done. And any time is a good time for tea, no matter how much of a hurry you may be in.

Moroccans treasure their tea, which is usually a Chinese green blended with sugar and herbs such as mint, bitter orange blossoms and absinthe leaves. It differs by region and season, and there is a prescribed ritual surrounding its preparation and consumption. It’s a constant reminder to slow down and savor life.

Enjoy one writer’s experiences with tea in Morocco.
