This beautiful Moroccan Tea Light was handmade by skilled Moroccan artisans. It is the perfect way to enjoy a refreshing brew in style, while dreaming of faraway lands. Whether you’re overlooking the chaos of Marrakesh’s souk, or gazing over the sparse landscapes of the Atlas Mountains, there’s always time for tea in Morocco. Moroccans begin drinking tea with breakfast and continue throughout the day. It is usually always available, and is never far away. Moroccan hosts usually serve tea in gorgeous metal teapots like this one. Guests enjoy it, meanwhile, from intimately decorated glasses, often alongside traditional sweets.
Moroccans love to brew and drink tea, and see it as central to good hospitality and friendship. They carry out this tradition with love and care, in ways that have been passed down through generations. The preparation of tea is called atai, and is often done in front of guests. As such, it is a performative process that hosts take great pride in doing well. Ingredients vary from region to region and with seasons, but the cultural significance never changes.
Moroccans serve their tea by pouring it into glasses from a height of at least twelve inches. Apart from being spectacular to watch, this ensures that a foam forms on top. They consider tea to only be drinkable if there is a good foam on it – otherwise it needs more time to steep. In some areas, hosts will mix ingredients when pouring their tea, making the ritual even more intricate. Getting it right demands time and practice.
Impress your guests with full Moroccan hospitality using this gorgeous Moroccan Tea Light. Handmade, unique and with a great story to tell, it is an indispensable addition to any home.
