Berrad tee




Sunday, October 19, 2014
"The history of Moroccan tea is attributed to several sources. It is believed that Moroccan tea was first introduced to morocco in the 12th century B.C by the Phoenicians who settled in the north of the country for more than eight centuries. Another hypotheses links it to the first settlers of Morocco, the Berbers, who brought that green Plant with them when they moved from their original land in Asia . Also, another historical theory said that tea came to Morocco from Spain and Portuguese at the time of their military attempts to conquer it in the 18th century. Besides, some historians thinks that tea was first known to Moroccans through maritime piracy (maritime jihad), that was active at that time in both the Atlantic ocean and the Mediterranean.
These historian said that Moroccan pirates seized a cargo of ship that was loaded with tea. Nevertheless, this does not please some people, who assert that tea began to be known in Morocco and Moroccan cuisine only in the mid-1800s century, coinciding with the flourishing of mutual trade between Morocco and Europe. More than that, other historians go beyond that reporting that the king Moulay Ismail received many bags of green tea as a tribute from the queen of Britain after releasing some European prisoners. No matter how or when it was first it was brought to the country, Moroccan tea remains a fantastic drink that gives more zest to Moroccan cuisine."
 To the Moroccans, Moroccan tea stands for generosity and hospitality!
