• As the last bites of a meal in Marrakech are eaten, the tea pot is brought to the table. Carefully the host begins preparing and pouring the sweet Maghrebi mint tea. In a culture that prides itself on hospitality, tea signals the start of a relationship and a mark of friendship. As the poet Abdallah Zrika so eloquently puts it, in Morocco "the whole universe is found in a teapot."
