Just started trying to get back into it. :) Glad you liked it - apparently Moroccan peppermint tea is delicious,

"The Moroccan teapot, or berrad, is not only beautiful, but the perfect shape for delivering the long pour you’ll need for your tea. Moroccan tea glasses are generally small, handleless, and often colourful.
