What to drink in Morocco | Intrepid Travel (2024)

Mint tea

Morocco’s signature drink is more than refreshing. Mint tea is served with reverence, as a gesture of hospitality and welcome that warms both the mouth and the heart.

Orange juice

Citrus is a big business in Morocco. While plenty of Morocco's oranges are exported for eating and juicing around the world, the ones that make it into local blenders tend to come from small, traditional farms. The result? The juice equivalent of going from black and white to color TV. Don't skip it!


It's important to stay hydrated while traveling in Morocco. However, tap water isn't safe to drink for travelers not accustomed to the bacteria. For environmental reasons, we recommend packing a reusable water bottle and filling it up with filtered water from your accommodation and/or carrying water purification tablets.
