The ras el ma teapot is made of copper and made in a traditional and artisanal way in Morocco, commonly used in Moroccan households to prepare and serve tea. It is made of copper and often decorated with intricate designs and patterns. The teapot has a long curved beak and a handle that is placed perpendicular to the body of the teapot.
In Moroccan culture, tea is an integral part of daily life and is often shared with friends and family. Tea is usually a mixture of green tea, mint leaves and sugar, and is prepared using the copper teapot on a charcoal fire. The tea is then poured from a height into small glasses, creating a frothy layer on top, which is considered a sign of good tea.
Moroccan copper teapots are not only functional but also decorative. They are often exhibited in salons and used as a centerpiece at social gatherings. They are also popular souvenirs for tourists visiting Morocco. However, it should be noted that some modern teapots are made from other materials, such as stainless steel, and may not have the same cultural significance as the traditional copper teapot
