Mint tea is not just a drink in Morocco. It is probably the most famous symbolization of Morocco. It is a sign of hospitality, friendship and tradition. For its popularity, it is served all day long, after every meal and with every conversation. Moroccans take great pride in their tea and often ask a visitor to try it. ‘Mint Tea’ is the title of a recently published book by Iranian journalist and writer Mansour Zabetian.

The book is a travel memoir Zabetian wrote after his trip to the North African country. It has been released by Mosallas Publication in 160 pages, and includes many full-page colored pictures of the kingdom.

According to his website, Zabetian, 47, began his career in journalism with interviews and various reports for magazines and newspapers. He has also had some TV programs, the most successful and popular of which was ‘Radio Seven’ that was broadcast for five years.

‘Mark va Polo’ is another title Zabatian published in 2009, a travelogue written based on his trips to France, Italy, Armenia, Spain, the US, India and South Korea. The book’s title resembles Marco Polo (1254-1324), famous Italian merchant, explorer and writer.
