Traditionally Moroccans consume a harsh beverage prepared with fresh or dried mint leaves. The English were thought to have introduced Moroccans to tea, which was delightfully welcomed as a pleasant way to blend out the harshness of mint. The introduction came about on account of the proximity of the British at their garrison in Gibraltar. The trade links between Gibraltar and Morocco made the blending of cultures and the adoption of tea a natural extension of their geographic position.
If you can picture yourself sitting on a long fringe carpet in a colourful tiled room decorated in bright Islamic design, sipping from a small handpainted glass -you may discover one of the many pleasures of this ancient kingdom. Moroccans say that tea should be bitter as death, sweet as life, and as mellow as love. We've tried to capture that in this cup.
