Hi. I'm trying to do a Fr-Eng translation, and I've run across the following sentence. I'm having a hard time understanding the sense of the verb based on the translations I can find online, and how it affects the gesture the host makes. Sentence: "L’hôte lui offre un verre de thé en souriant et le verse en reproduisant le geste ancestral." Context: A young man enters into a Moroccan garden, and is warmly welcomed by a host, who serves him tea. My attempt: Smiling, the host offers him a cup of tea and ___________ him in/while repeating/performing the/this ancestral gesture. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
