The most important thing in preparing Moroccan mint tea is to have the right teapot. Of course, you can get away with it by letting the ingredients brew in water as with most tea infusions.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind before you buy one for your kitchen.
Tips for buying the best Moroccan teapot
Whether you buy your teapot in Morocco or online (I share my favorite links below), here are the most important points to consider before buying a Moroccan teapot.
A good Moroccan teapot should also be heat resistant, as it will be in direct contact with the heat of the stove for at least 2 minutes.
In fact, to make an authentic Moroccan mint tea, Moroccans brew the tea and mint leaves in boiling water for a few minutes. This means that the teapot must be able to withstand very high temperatures for a short period of time.
If you are considering using your ceramic or clay teapot, let me tell you that this is a bad idea. I tried it once and my beautiful teapot cracked in no time!Your Moroccan teapot must be heat resistant. It must be specified by the seller, as many Moroccan teapots are for decorative purposes, which means that you can use them to serve tea but not to make it.That being said, remember to ALWAYS USE it with a heat diffuser. Not only will it preserve your teapot in the long run, but it will also keep its aesthetics by avoiding dark burn marks.
2- Focus on basic teapots
Another tip I always recommend is to focus on basic teapots. By basic, I mean that the teapot will not have feet, as in the picture below.The fact that these teapots do not have feet makes them more compatible with most types of stoves.
3- Moroccan teapot size
In Morocco, traditional mint tea is served in small Moroccan cups. Quality is more important than quantity and it is very rare to be served more than two cups at the same meeting.Moroccans drink their tea very slowly until it is no longer hot, then the host pours a little more to warm the cup. If you are hosting more than 4 people, get a 32oz teapot. Otherwise, a 16oz teapot will be more than enough (and cheaper).
Typical Moroccan tea glasses
Moroccan tea glasses exist in all colors and models. They can be discreet or daring. Moroccans also like to mix different colors of glass in the same set. There are no rules and it all depends on your personal taste.Moroccan tea services of different styles and colorsIf you are looking for typical Moroccan cups to use with your Moroccan teapot, here is a nice selection of Moroccan glasses.Composition of the teapotThe composition of Moroccan teapots of good quality is usually stainless steel or silver plated.
Thanks to these materials, the teapot does not transfer bad chemicals to your drink.In addition, stainless steel and silver plated teapots are more durable and will last for decades if maintained.

Stainless steel and silver teapots can be slightly more expensive than teapots made of other materials, such as aluminum or copper. But it is a much safer and, as I said before, much more durable option. They are worth every penny.Moroccan stainless steel teapot with a beautiful engraving.
