Marrakesh Local Customs: 100 reviews and 127 photos
<BR><font color=red size=+1>MINT TEA</font><BR>
Probably the most popular drink in Morocco. It was introduced in the 19th century by the british (who else?). Here they use the <i>Green Tea</i> (Gunpowder) with mint leaves and sugar.<BR>
It is not only a drink (better than water for the thirsty moments) but <b>a tradition and a ceremony</b> (they prepare it pouring it from one glass to another). If you are offered tea, it's considered unpolite to say NO, so you better get used to it.<BR>
You are even supossed to accept <font color=red>3 glasses of tea</font> at least, the 4th you can refuse... They say the 1st one is full of sugar as life, the 2nd sweet as love and the 3rd bitter as death!!
