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 the opposite with respect to its origin.
Tea appeared in China 5,000 years ago. It was then a drink reserved for the king and his court. Several centuries later, an Arab trader speaks of 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 remains a drink reserved for the court.
It will take some years for it to become a popular drink and an essential element in the Maghreb culture.
Morocco has always produced one of the best teapots in the world. And since all these years, its craftsmen have worked the silver, the gold, the alpaca, the wood and others ... Developing more and more original sculptures and drawings.
This maroqui teapot in carved alpaca will be the central element of your Arabic tea set. Pretty and original, leaves the tea hot and tasty.
