    Have you tried tea with cardamom and cinnamon? I tried it at a friend's place and I liked it. Her husband is Syrian & that's how she learnt how to make it.

    Oh I found out that drink it's not tea at all It's called jellab it's a Lebanese traditional drink made with raisins and sprinkled with pine nuts, it's delicious.

    Turkish apple tea is lovely they call it Elma Çay,it comes as a powder and it's very refreshing, you'll findplenty of it on the internet, or Harringay

    That idea you suggested sounds like chai, which is traditional in pakistan, Somalia and many other places as it says here, recipes differ though so the version they give is not the only one

      I tried the Ginger and cinnamon but not cardamom. I think you can get it in the supermarket, right?

      I am not a big tea drinker myself, I like to have it when out after a meal...

      I see in the Cuisine section that you are a good cook, so I will try and get some tips off you...

        I don't know if we can get it in supermarkets. Small shops more like it perhaps.

        I know my friend put some tea leaves in a tea pot then she rinsed them with boiling water like we do when we prepare mint tea, Then added about 6 cardamom pods and a small (~ 2 inch) cinnamon stick. Then added boiling water.

        I like mint tea but now I feel like trying new teas since I tried the one I mentioned above

          Jannah, how do you make a drink from raisins?

          Have you tried any of those in the links you gave? Tea with cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, ginger root, black pepper corns, and bay leaves!! Sounds veeery rich!

                    I'm fine. I'm still but getting there. Looks like the weather isn't that great in the U.K since you are in.

                        It's grey today but I got used to UK weather. I always go home in Summer to get my dose of sunshine

                          Mmm that chai recipe sounds a bit odd, try spice imperial by whittards, it's addictive

                          I don't know how they make it from raisins, I only just found out myself and haven't found a recipe yet, and no MM it's not alcoholic!

                              Doesn't sound like something I'd like. Too sweet!!
