Kasbah Tamadot: Meet our master tea-maker Mohammed

As you wander through Kasbah Tamdot, over the pretty tiled floors and past fountains filled with rose petals, you’ll enter a quiet courtyard and spot some traditional Moroccan seats and a table with a pot of freshly brewed mint tea – that’s where you’ll find Mohammed, one the most wonderful tea makers in the whole of Morocco.

Mohammed Ait Belhaj, also known as Mohammed Senior, is one of our longest standing members of the team having been with us since opening in 2005. After nearly 10 years as Restaurant Manager, and father to six children and grandfather to seven grandchildren, Mohammed decided to take well-deserved retirement.

Soon Mohammed found himself missing his Kasbah Tamadot family, as well as our guests – who are his favourite thing about his job! So when our General Manager, Vincent, later met up with Mohammed he offered him a special role which he couldn’t refuse and this is how Mohammed became our Master Tea Maker.

The next time you visit Kasbah Tamadot be sure to take a seat and join Mohammed for a refreshing cup of traditional Berber tea and ask him anything! He knows the area inside and out and loves to share travel tips as well as traditional Moroccan cooking.
