    That was fascinating!! I loved mint tea with pine nuts floating on top when we were in Tunisia a couple of years ago. I'm really looking forward to Moroccan mint tea when we visit in October yummy.gif Thanks Hajar! I really look forward to your posts. icon_biggrin.gif

    Your description of tea is very much what we experienced in Morocco!

    It might be worth noting as well that even in the desert, where fresh mint is not available, they call it mint tea and they use a wild herb to put in the tea.

    Perhaps you will know the name of it Hajar?

    From memory it appeared to have small yellow flowers on it.

    All I know is that when we were in the desert our guides often made two pots, one for them with this herb and another without for us. When I asked why they made two pots, they gently explained the herb tended to have a laxative effect on people not used to it. I was (ahem) in need of this herb so I tried some and it certainly did work, and very quickly too!

    After a while I got used to it though so I think it only does that on the first cup or two icon_lol.gif icon_redface.gif

    Hi Hajar,
    I was poking around for Moroccan recipes and stumbled on your writing, very funny and excellent!
    I was wondering if you could tell me what beverage Moroccans consume during dinner or at meals - seems like mint tea is for the end of the meal? Or am I mistaken?
    Thanks!

    I am not sure 100%, but usually in the middle east, tea is enjoyed with either breakfast or anytime thru out the day except for mealtime.
