Tea in Casablanca

We went into this lovely garden restaurant in Casablanca. There were water fountains, trellisses with flowering ivy, and a staff of smiling young men and women. We had been warned at the cruise lectures to be careful what we ate or drank when we were on port, since all countries don't have the same degree of cleanliness that they have on the ship. So we asked for tea. Our server brought the teapot with hot water and poured it from close lifting the teapot all the way above his head while continuing to pour the hot water. It was a great show. We took pictures while he was pouring, and I painted this later aboard the ship, from the pictures I had taken.
