The Moroccan teapot is the master of the Moroccan gastronomy . You can find it in ceremonies , special events , and on a daily basics .
Tea culture :
It is the must have for Moroccan families , you’ll find it probably in every home !
Different shapes and tastes :
As I said previously , tea has an important culture impact , so to represent it Moroccan artisans create different shapes , colours , decorations ..
the several tastes of tea depend on the geographic zones : for example “Sahraoui tea” (the south) , the preparation is so delicate , long and complex. but it is so tasty . And in the north of Morocco , you will have a huge glass of tea , with some extra mint leaves and stunning jasmine and an orange flower flavour
Probably , When you visit Morocco ( especially the old cities : Fes , Marrakech , Rabat , …) , you’ll definitely notice in different areas a collection of shapes , colors , patterns collected and organized in a very artistic and harmonic way .
// Shapes , and colors :
From neutral tones to vibrant shades , plus uncountable shapes . All those compositions can create a nice oriental atmosphere .
// Architecture and texture :
The geometric patterns could be found in ceramic , stone , plaster , wood , … and then transformed to decorate mirrors , ceilings , furniture , and doors .
// Historic background :
The influence of Islamic art , and arabesque decoration have been produced in the 7th century .
In Islamic countries , and particularly Morocco , geometric decoration has taken such a great importance .
