In many parts of the world, mint tea is served to welcome family and visitors to the home. Specifically in Morocco, the preparation of Mint Tea (or Maghrebi Tea as it’s often called) is symbolic of hospitality and friendship. Moroccan Mint Tea is traditionally served three times out of generosity. Each glass has its own meaning in the circle of life; the first oneis said to be “as bitter as life”, the second is “as strong as love”, and the third is “as gentle as death”. All of the three offerings should be drunk out of politeness and respect for the culture.
