Visitors' Opinion, Comments and FAQ
Who is a Mashtee (MashTea!, Mashdi, Mashdeee)?
Mashtee is the title one receives when he/she visits Mashhad or The Imam Reza's shrine. Mashtee is also used as a sign of respect and acknowledgement of one's religous devotion. Mashtee is an alternative title to Haji, which is bestowed on a Moslem after visiting and attending to Moslem pilgrimage in Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Mashtee is also a title (rather a generic one) to anybody from Mashhad. Mashtee is actually a slang for Mashhadi (one from Mashhad).
The other day I asked a good friend of mine what "Mashtee" meant to him and whether there was an English equivalent for it. He thought for a few seconds and then said, "I guess, Dude!". I said, Dude? "Yes", he said. "Mashtee is a real cool dude!!". Well, immediately I agreed with him, since I am from Mashhad, and therefore a True Blue Mashtee.
Dude on the right is Mashtee Gholee and has his own Cyber Tea House, Check it out.
