Fresh spearmint leaves, dried tea leaves, sugar and boiling water are prepared in a silver pot and ceremoniously poured into delicate, ornate glasses.
The pouring is done the traditional way, from a height of twelve or so inches. The tea is fragrant and sweet.
In the heart of the Medina, behind the ancient riad walls, tea time is regal and refreshing.

View from the roof of the Hotel Kniza, Marrakesh
An absolutely lovely hotel, in all ways, Riad Kniza was gracious, beautifully restored, and tempting to never leave! The small hamman is a gem! Have them order you some of their special black soap to take home. (Much better than the offerings in the medina.)
The roof is the spot for relaxing and breakfast. The high Atlas are visible on a clear day, as well as the rooftop satellite dishes.
It's in the heart of the medina, so you can get lost immediately when you exit the door.
Doors. Doors are so important in Morocco. These magnificent doors opened to our sitting area and bedroom. Splendid.
Everything about the Riad Kniza was wonderful, the small intimate hammam, the pool, the food, the room, the gracious hosts and the roof top breakfasts and views. Highly recommended.
