[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Moroccan woman pouring tea dedicated to Teresa (teresat), a dear friend and an artist photographer, for her inspiring B&W photos, always accompanied by insightful notes.

Moroccans pour their tea differently from anyone else. The teapot is held high in the air by the head of the household, and poured into the small glasses that have fresh mint inside of them. The height serves to make the tea bubble a bit on top, which the Moroccans prefer. Sometimes the tea is sweetened before serving, but most often in Morocco, it is served with lumps or cones of sugar to nibble on as the tea is drunk.

Ola Tsilla,

The composition of the tea vending lady is interesting. Pouring in tea from distance perhaps helps dissipating heat and might make it congenial for intake. The monochrome presentation has given an imapce of nostalgia which is interesting. An awesome snapshot, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,
