Libyan Drinks


Libyan sweet tea is served thick, in a small glass, often accompanied by mint or peanuts. Tea pouring ceremonies can last for a long time, particularly outside of the main towns.


 They are often as much about the ritual of the experience than the tea itself; indeed, some Libyans maintain that the amount of time spent pouring the tea makes little difference to its taste. In addition to traditional sweet tea, you can also order red or green tea throughout the country, including at service stations. Coffee is also drunk regularly.
