A visit to Western Sahara is not a real visit if you didn't drink the traditional mint tea. This is by far the most popular drink in the country and it is available pretty much everywhere. It's not only drunk at home or in a café, but you'll also see it in small shops, where the salesmen prepare it on the ground in a corner, or in any office where the people offer it to their customers as a sign of hospitality.
Mint tea has a base of green- or black tea, with a lot of sugar added to it. After this a lot of fresh mint leaves are added, giving the tea its very special taste. Sometimes the leaves stay in the pot, and you only have the real tea in your glass, but sometimes you get a glass full of leaves that you have to drink from.
Mint tea is the standard tea over here. If you just order tea you'll always get this. It is also the cheapest drink you'll find. For 50 cents you can easily buy yourself a full pot of tea, which is enough for 2 or 3 glasses. The special way of pooring it into the glass will be visible all around you: just have a look and copy it...
