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 has 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 craftsmen 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.
These maroqui-style tea glasses are the perfect size for drinking hot and rich tea. Thanks to their fine glass, they conserve the whole flavor of the tea.
Carved and hand-drawn in Arabic style, they will decorate the tea trays with elegance.
