Ubiquitous mint, found in gorgeous heaps throughout the medina in Marrakech, always delights. The glorious scent wafts down the alleyways as people carry bunches home to prepare fresh tea. Mint tea is not just a refreshing beverage, but as importantly, a ritual and art form,; it represents friendship and hospitality. Go to any home, any shop, any restaurant and you will be served this freshest of teas – loads of mint, a tiny bit of green tea and heaps of sugar. Served in a beautiful pot, poured into a tiny glass from above, and served on beautiful trays, this tradition is alive and well, one we can incorporate into our busy lives too!
