Where to stop for tea?

I'm about to visit Marrakech again and would appreciate some suggestions of good places to stop for a relax and a cup of mint tea. Last visit I spent quite a bit of time in cafes around the square people watching as I enjoyed my mint tea, which was great. However, I am sure there are some interesting 'Tea Houses' or more riad style places to take tea and would really appreciate some suggestions and recommendations.

Try one of the carpet emporia or one of the many tourist shops in the various souks where they will all be delighted to serve you a glass or three of mint tea in original surroundings. Riads do not offer a "drop in" tea service unless you are resident or lunch is being offered. There are however many cafes away from the square which can be interesting. Try those at Bab Doukkala for example.

LOL! Thanks Pilboulus - I hadn't thought about the carpet emporia and tourist shops! I spend more than enough time doing that in Luxor!

When I asked, I was thinking more of somewhere a little more relaxing. I read somewhere not so long back an account of someones visits to Marrakech and it led me to believe that there were some 'tea houses' hidden away in the narrow streets of the Medina but open to the public if you knew where to look. I love the hustle and bustle of the square and people watching too but sometimes it's nice just to find a cosy niche and relax somewhere a bit different.

Place des ferblantiers comes to mind. Perhaps not cosy but a different scene.
