Revive Your Soul With a Traditional Moroccan Tea

Across the city, the souks, or markets, showcase a sundry of everything from argan oil to traditional tea sets—complete with delightful miniature silver teaspoons. Indulge your wanderlust in Marrakech’s winding streets and then recharge with a traditional Moroccan tea at La Mamounia. For locals, tea is symbol of hospitality and friendship, and they take great pride in preparing it. Sipped throughout the day, after every meal, and with nearly every conversation, it combines an invigorating blend of gunpowder green tea and soothing fresh mint leaves steeped in boiling water and sweetened with sugar. Poured from an ornate kettle into delicate glasses placed on an elaborately etched, decorative silver tray, every detail is carefully considered and presented. This traditional tea engenders a clear wakefulness for appreciating good company and a gorgeous setting.
