Most people think that the tea tradition in Morocco has always existed. In fact, tea is a popular drink and is drunk several times a day.
However, history tells us otherwise with respect to its origin.
Tea has appeared in China 5.000 years ago. Then it was a drink reserved for the king and his court. Several centuries later, an Arab trader talks about tea for the first time and described it as "an herb that has more leaves than clover and more flavor"
Then, during the reign of Sultan Mulay Ismail, tea enters Morocco, but it is still a drink reserved for the court.
It will take a few years for it to become a popular drink and an essential element in the Maghreb culture.
Morocco has always produced one of the best crafts in the world. And since all these years, their artisans have worked silver, gold, alpaca, wood and others ... Developing increasingly original sculptures and drawings.
This typical hand-carved Moroccan tea tray will perfectly complete your tea set.
Simple, elegant, it will decorate your table in a subtle way and leave a sweet perfume of the Orient at home.
