My love affair with Moroccan tea at Shakespeare & Co. Dubai

And so I sipped the minty lemon tea under the star-studded Arabian sky while allowing the soft clouds from the neighbouring sheesha surround me with its fruity aroma. moroccon tea_tanyamunshi

Served in pretty silver teapots, the Moroccan tea is tipped into dainty glass teacups that stand firmly on matching glass saucers and are served along with cookies to balance out the taste.

I’m a tea lover; I liked it brewed, boiled or chilled. But the Moroccan Tea at Shakespeare and Co. at Springs was very uplifting in mind, body and spirit.

The light lemony clear tea had both the warmth and subtle flavours that any tea lover looks for.

The little cookies accompanying the tea were a delight, they were not harshly sweet, salty or dry. A perfect balance of soft and crusty, the cookies was a perfect partner to my Moroccan tea.

The tea had just the right amount of mint with a mischievous hint of lemon to refresh you after a tiring day.

The ambience was perfect ~ a slight nip in the air as we nestled ourselves in comfy couches outdoors sipping on our tea and catching up on good old times. I brought along crayons and colouring books to keep my toddler occupied. She was the happiest nibbling on the Moroccan cookies and filling up a diagram of Mickey Mouse with crayons.

During my trip, I had a chance to sip on some exquisite Saffron milky tea, which was a perfect tonic to beat the chilly breeze in the open grounds at Zabeel Park where I was representing The Lifestyle Portal at the Masala Dubai Food Festival 2015.

If you’re visiting Dubai on a holiday/ work, make sure you drop by at one of the Shakespeare and Co. in Dubai Mall, Arabian Ranches, Dubai Marina Mall, Safa Mall or Ibn Batuta Mall for an evening tea, to catch up on your work or for a client meeting.
