Moroccan Mint tea and pastries

One of the delights of Magical Marrakech is a traditional mint tea which is usually made from seven or more mint and herb varieties.  What could be more refreshing as you relax in your Marrakech Riad.

The video above shows a young man called Mohamed who takes care of his family mint and herb stall in the Marrakech. We are delighted to support the local community in the Marrakech souks near to our Riad hotels.  There is no better way to gain an appreciation of this ancient culture than to stay in the heart of the old town Medina.


Fresh herbs are staples in Marrakech. ‘mint tea’ often contains at least six different fresh herbs and generous quantities of these fresh ingredients form the basis of much moroccan cuisine.

Street vendors are very often selling the produce of their own smallholdings. They arrive in the city in the mid morning and set up simple stalls on the narrow streets of the Medina.

Our Marrakech Riads provide the perfect base from which to explore and experience at first hand the rich and ancient way of life in the old town medina. Make your reservation today!
