Tea Houses in Granada
« on: August 10, 2014, 08:09:13 AM »
I have been told that a good thing to do in Granada is to go to a Tea House.

Where are the best ones?

In the last 20 years tea houses have proliferated in Granada.

They are centred mainly around the Caldererias which is a Moroccan street in Granada reminiscent of an Arabic Kasbah.

Most of them serve a wide variety of teas, and they sell cakes and Moroccan delicacies.
Some of them do fixed priced menus although if you look on review sites many people complain a lot about the quality of food
so just stick to the tea and cakes if you are a fussy or demanding eater

The atmosphere is very chilled out and there is relaxing Moroccan music.

Most of them don't serve alcohol.

The waiters are usually laid back and you should not expect to be served very quickly. Maybe this is a cultural thing so don't go if you are in an impatient frame of mind.

You can also partake of a hookah which is a Moroccan smoking pipe.

Flavored tobacco is  created by marinating cuts of tobacco in a multitude of flavored molasses, this is then is put  above the water and covered by pierced foil with hot coals placed on top, and the smoke is drawn through cold water to cool and filter it.
There is no hashish in it.
