I am a very big tea drinker. And by very big I mean drink-every-morning, drink-to-enjoy, drink-hot-or-cold, drink-with-a-smile-on-her-face tea drinker. I love tea. I love trying new kinds of tea. When I went to San Francisco, I had the opportunity to try Arabic tea at this place calledKan Zaman. It was ahhhhhmazing! Like nothing I'd ever tried before and so beautiful to look at because of the mint leaves floating about.After much googling, my friend found how to recreate it at home, and now I'm showing you guys! This isn't traditional, traditional Arabic tea but this is a way to recreate the flavors at home even if you can't find the real deal. It's delicious and if you love tea, please try this recipe!
Yields: 2 servings
3 cups water
10 - 15 mint leaves or sage (I haven't tried this version yet)
Sugar, to your liking (I use 1 tsp. per serving)
In a large measuring cup, add the mint leaves and tea bags. Boil the water and pour over the tea bags and mint leaves. Let steep for 5 minutes. Add sugar to your liking and enjoy!
