Care for a cup of tea anyone?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketI have different type of tea in my house. We have cammomile, earl grey, russian earl grey (what's the difference?), white tea, vanilla tea, forest fruit tea, lemon tea, rosehip tea and verbana. Oh and normal tea. Let me correct, I have different flavored tea. This is all Haziq's doing. He likes them so much, he insisted we get them. Last Ramadhan he even typed out and printed out schedules of tea for breaking fast everyday. I had to negotiate to make milo, chai (tea with milk or teh tarik) and coffee.

I tried masala tea with lover, but he doesn't seem to like it. It is your normal tea with mil, preferably thick ta and evaporated milk. For masala tea, you just add cardamom when the tea is brewing hot. Over here there is even evaporated milk already with the taste of cardamom. I must say it is an acquired taste. Lover didn't like it.

Now lover is so into a new flavoured tea. Mint tea.

Mint tea is just so easy to do. To make it is really as the name suggest. Tea with a few mint leaves. It should be drank hot with medium tea thickness.

And in a hot summer night, after a good dinner, I find this very refreshing.

Any other tea you want to suggest?

Recently i ran out of my fav jasmine green tea...i made the normal lipton tea, and added a spoonful of sunquick orange concentrate...it gave the tea a nice fruity smell and flavour ...well, for emergencies, ok la. ;-)

Saya takut minum teh banyak sangat takut errr susah buang air besar.


Mint tea memang sedap. Especially if you drink it in the streets of Rabat or Casablanca

I love mint tea!
In Malaysia, my hubby and I usually get them at Tarbush in Ampang Point. It's quite refreshing as you said.

Will try to find fresh mint leaves, or else, buy the prepacked ones at the supermarket.

Our specialties at home are Korean Ginseng Tea & Taiwan Green - places where my husband travels to. And I like all varieties from Twinnings too.
