Try traditional Moroccan whiskey, which is a humorous name for a most delicious mint tea ever. It really looks like that strong drink!
In Morocco, they are so fond of tea that they jokingly call it Moroccan whiskey. It really does look like that strong drink, but the taste of it is quite unique. They make Moroccan whiskey of green tea, mint and sugar. This sweet, strong and hot tea is usually served in a metal teapot served on a silver or copper tray.
When they pour this refreshing drink into high cups, they lift the teapot up high, so that the stream makes foam — the more foam the better the tea. In local restaurants this tea is served with traditional meat tajine, mouthwatering couscous and fragrant oranges with cinnamon. You can try Moroccan whiskey at any café in the country.
This tea is good at any time of the day: it invigorates you in the morning, improves digestion in the afternoon, relaxes and tunes in for a sound sleep in the evening.
