Every year, thousands of tourists visit Casablanca’s historic Habbous neighborhood to see the Royal Palace, Mkhama du Pacha, and artisanal shops, but very few have the privilege of an in-home cultural exchange with the locals who live there. On this Luxury Moroccan Tea Time Experience, you’re invited into a beautiful private riad for a morning or afternoon tea ceremony. Your hostess will share stories about growing up in Habbous and offer personal insights about Moroccan culture, hospitality, and riad living. You’ll have your own Moroccan tea service to follow along as she guides you through a traditional Moroccan tea ceremony. Afterwards, savor mint tea while sampling a variety of Moroccan breads and pastries. This is a relaxing, authentic way to experience Moroccan culture and connect with a local on a personal level.
