An introduction to brewing and serving
classic Moroccan mint tea found on sbs.com.au
The preparation and serving of tea is considered an art in Morocco, and chief to both are the proper pot, glasses, and the special 3-legged tray (“sinya”) on which it’s usually served. The teapots come in 3 sizes (individual, 2 people, and large for families), and are crafted of tin, brass, aluminum, or silver alloys. Depending upon social rank, teapots might be engraved sterling or gold plated. Almost all but the poorest families will have an elaborate tea set including a decorative tray and glasses.
