The Al Kamar 3505B tea is an ideal drink with a floral aroma and delicate taste that can be enjoyed any time of the day.
Glassy red-brew and tea biscuits, there’s nothing quite like an Al Kamar cup of tea. Tea has become a staple of the Moroccan household; kitchens are lined with loose-leaf variants, The Al Kamar 3505B tea, and traditional crystal glasses made just for its enjoyment.
A classless drink, one found across the country. While some enjoy it with a side of mastic shisha, others will dip butter biscuits into their brew and dine away. Unlike Chinese and British customs, that dedicate particular periods of the day to tea, Moroccans are likely to enjoy shai at any given moment – be that in the early morning, or well past a household’s bedtime.
Perhaps due to affordability, though mostly due to varieties, Morocco has developed a local culture around drinking tea. According to the Al Kamar Tea, locals consume more than 75,000 tonnes of tea annually, despite importing the vast majority from other countries such as China and Sri Lanka.
The act of drinking tea, however, has graduated from a pleasant evening ritual, to a core element of Moroccan hospitality. Moroccans will offer several cups to loved ones in one sitting, and serve it after any meal offered to a guest. It is a simple and modest show of love and courtesy that stretches across social taboos and preferences, a love letter to those who are not fond of coffee and whose principles skip on wine. In many homes, there is a small mint plant on the windowsill and a plastic tray dedicated to serving that sweet-smelling sugared tea.
