Most people think that the tradition of tea in Morocco has always existed. In fact, tea is a popular beverage and is drunk several times a day.
However, history tells us the opposite regarding its origin.
Tea appeared in China 5,000 years ago. Back then it was a drink reserved for the king and his court. Several centuries later, an Arab merchant spoke 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 entered Morocco, but it remained a drink reserved for the court.
It will take a few years for it to become a popular drink and an essential element in Maghrebi culture.
Morocco has always produced some of the best artisan teapots in the world. And for all these years, its artisans have worked with silver, gold, nickel silver, wood and others... Developing increasingly original sculptures and drawings.
This Moroccan teapot in carved nickel silver will be the centerpiece of your Arabic tea set. Beautiful and original, it leaves the tea hot and tasty.
