Teatime has a very special meaning in Morocco and anytime is teatime.
Here a returning tea maid walks through the alleys in Marrakech, Morocco after serving a tray of mint teas.
Specially prepared in metal teapots and served with extra sugar, the tea takes time to get used to, but soon becomes part of the travellers daily refreshments.
Even the tea pouring is a customer event in itself. The pot is moved up and down above the cup to help cool the tea before drinking.
