Not just regular old tea and cookies but the North African sort for a change of pace. One foot inside La Bague de Kenza this is what you see - a tidal wave of unfamiliar sweets and cookies (unfamiliar to me at least.)
There are piles and piles of treats, so many that my head began to spin. What is all this stuff? Which ones should I pick?
There must be a lot of customers like me - dazed to the point of indecision. They've propped up a book next to the front door describing what everything is. Too bad it's in French and Arabic, it did me only so much good. These little puppies looked cool though. Ghribia are a mix of all the good things in life: flour, butter, eggs and confectioners sugar.
I went with the point and eat method - I added two other unknowns to with my Ghribia and a pot of tea. All were good, but my personal favorite was the frosty white moon.
Now for the tea. Pingle, this is as far away from Chinese tea as you can get. It was super-sweet and flavored with mint. It was really good but it may be a tad sweet for you. It's served in a cool silver tea pot that seemed bottomless - I poured endless cups for myself. Definitely a nice experience that you should try.
