I just remembered something. The sugar pieces we got in Morocco with the tea, they weren’t normal sized sugar pieces. They were gigantic. Take a normal piece of sugar and multiply it by ten, then you have a Moroccan piece of sugar. And people put it in their tea, and then they actually drink it.
There should be a lot of work for dentists over there, and doctors specialized on diabetes and researchers doing research on the effect of sugar on the human body. I liked it when they prepared the tea for you at the cafés, but when they started serving just hot water in a teapot with the mint leaves and sugar on the side I started to realize what it was we actually drank.
Cheers for mint, but thumbs down for the sugar combo. Mint tea is perfect as it is, without sweetening. No wonder I got addicted to that stuff.
