Sometimes referred to as Berber Whisky, tea has been an integral part of Moroccan culture for centuries. However, this is not solely unique to Morocco; the offering of tea in many cultures is a sign of hospitality and respect for ones guests. Upon entering homes, or shops, one is always offered the ever famous green tea with mint leaves, which is usually served highly sweetened with sugar. The pouring of the tea is also an art form. The higher you have the tea kettle from the glass with a perfect bead of liquid flowing, the more accomplished is the poorer. So sit back and enjoy the warmth and hospitality of your hosts, it may become one of the favorite parts of your trip.
