Transcript:Ethiopian Tea RecipeHi, I'm Lea Elleseff for About.com Food. Today we're going to prepare a swift cup of Ethiopian tea.
Ethiopian Tea IngredientsTo do this, you will need the following ingredients:
- black tea
- 1 cinnamon stick
- orange slice (for garnish)
Combine the Hot Water and Black TeaPreparing this tea is a spicy breeze. All there is to do is to pour boiling water in to your favorite tea cup.
Add black tea. I prefer loose leaf, but tea bags are fine.
Add the Spices and HoneySprinkle in a few pods of cardamom and a bit or two of clove. Don't forget your cinnamon stick and honey to taste.
Let the Ethiopian Tea SitNow that everything is swimming together, stir your tea. Add your garnish of orange slice, and let the brew sit for 3-5 minutes.
The longer you let it sit the spicier your tea will be. And now, your Ethiopian tea is ready to serve.
