Shai (Mint Tea)

(Mint Tea)

No one in Egypt doesn't drink tea
in fields and highland and Farmers areas in egypt they put around 5 teaspoon full of tea with no sugar at all and they drank it .. I would die if i were them it so hard .. really


1 package mint tea (loose or in tea bags)
4 to 6 cups water (depending on how many people are being served)


1-Bring water to a boil.

2-If using loose tea, measure 1 teaspoon of tea leaves into a teapot for each person being served.
Otherwise, place one tea bag per person into the teapot.

3-Pour boiling water over tea.

4-Allow to steep (soak) for about 3 minutes.

5-Pour tea into cups. (In Egypt, small glass tumblers are used.)

6-If loose tea is used, allow the tea leaves to settle to the bottom of the pot, and pour carefully to avoid disturbing them.

7-Add 4 or 5 teaspoonfuls of sugar to each cup.

Enjoy with a piece of baklava or biscuits.
