Mint tea in Marrakech

Whether in a grand hotel or above a souk market, drinking some mint tea will always be an unforgettable experience.

Very popular tradition in Japan, tea ceremonies are just as genuine and ceremonial in Marrakech. Prepared with freshly infused leaves, mint tea may be sweet, peppered and hot but never scalding. It may seem simple and yet, you will notice it doesn't hold the same flavours when it is made by the book, in an Eastern setting while admiring a sunset over the Atlas mountains with a few notes of oud and kwitra, specific Arabo-Andalusian instruments, filling the air.
Take advantage of that mint tea experience to discover the nicest hotels in town, for instance Le Mandarin Oriental, the Four Seasons and the Royal Mansour. Or go to La Mamounia luxury hotel and wander around the garden filled with hundred-year old olive trees to reach Le Menzeh pavilion, where a waiter will offer you delicious traditional pastries along the tea. After some polite bargaining in the souk, leave the turmoil of lively narrow streets and rise above at the Terrasse des Épices. While walking up the staircase, you'll enjoy a magnificent view onto the roofs of the souk. An ‘open-air' mint tea experience.
