We were somewhat surprised to observe that not only did most students appear to enjoy having their tea poured Moroccan style (see above), but that they also wanted to learn to pour that way themselves. The more extreme high elevation variation (see the second image) drew a great deal of attention. We conjecture there is visual, auditory and perhaps aromatic appeal. That students might want to interact with other students is noteworthy. Of interest is whether a student observing others nearby drink various beverages might tempt the student to experiment.

We certainly did NOT expect that students would be willing, even eager, to pour tea for other students. That does not sound very autistic to us.
