The most common refreshment of Morocco is mint tea prepared in bulbous, silver-coloured tea-pots and served in glasses. It is an infusion of mint leaves and either green or negre (black) tea (a solicitous host will offer both). The mint is placed either in the glass or in the tea-pot. When poured, the pot is usually held high above the glass in order to "aerate" the liquid as it falls. Tea is served throughout the day and after any meal. Sometimes instead of mint, it is laced with peanuts or orange blossom.

I love this. There is clearly a warm friendship between these three men. You captured the relaxed moment very well. Excellent exposure and sharpness - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

Those members of a kitchen government bear an exotic complexion and seem to take pride in the daily custom of drinking responsibly the local elixir, which allows them to take a long rest while the women keep on working!

Une bonne scène de vie bien photographiée sous cette lumière.L'exposition est bien calibrée et la scène semble bien naturelle.

A colourful shot, certainly does look cozy everyday scene and a very male domain place to socialise. I love the different poses and expressions to interest the eye with good detail in the faces. I think one of most important thing in photography is to capture the "feel"... and you caught the Feel there that leaves a lasting impression!!!
Well done, Congrats

your note is interesting and evokes so lovely aromas, tea must be a great daily delight in Morocco. I like very much your tight composition that brings the three friends closer and also gives us an effective impression of how crammed the surroundings are. Excellent sharpness and colour management make the scene look so vivid. The three friends look comfortable and relaxed, enjoying their tea and each other's company. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
