Fragrant Tea with Cinnamon and Orange

This is one of the most fragrant and pronounced teas. Yeah, these are all spices … With the advent of autumn, I want to add them everywhere and more. It seems that they saturate her, or something.

  • small orange

Properly selected composition will reveal the taste of the drink and warm you with cool autumn days..
  3. Throw the clean leaves of lemon balm into a cup and pour the resulting broth using a strainer. Let the drink brew for about five minutes. Sweeten it with honey or stevia. If you wish, you can pour a couple of spoons of orange juice.

Sea buckthorn tea with orange and rosemary

A thermometer is not needed to determine the water temperature. As soon as you see the steam and the kettle begins to vibrate slightly, it will be 65–75 degrees, and when the water starts to bubble – 85–90 ° C.

Moroccan tea

In Morocco, tea is drunk everywhere and always: they love very much. We have it, Moroccan – no less. It is considered a drink of health and beauty. Such tea is safely served in beauty salons after SPA procedures, conspiratorially saying: “This is our signature”.

In the preparation of Moroccan tea, in the homeland of the beautifully called “those Moruno”, there is nothing complicated.

You need:

  • 1-2 tsp green tea (main ingredient)
  • 20 grams of fresh ginger
  • 2-3 cups of lemon or lime
  • 2 clove buds
  • sprig of mint
  • water
  • honey (to taste).

What to do:

  1. Peel the ginger root, cut into cubes and place in the kettle. By the way, in Morocco they use exclusively silver or tin teapots for this..

  1. Add tea, lemon or lime, cloves and mint. If there is no fresh mint, take dried. In Morocco, it is combined with wormwood, which is called chiba in the local dialect. Want a spicy bitterness, don’t ignore the wormwood.
  2. Pour boiling water over everything. It is boiling water. Yes, green tea does not like him, therefore in Africa they make tea separately and separately mint with spices (we are too lazy). And only boiling water will make mint, ginger and spices share their benefits. And if you want everything to be right, act like real Moroccans.

Take 5-10 minutes to start pouring the drink into glasses. Love sweets, throw and honey. Will not hurt.

And this is how this traditional drink is served in Morocco.

Pay attention to how it is poured. This is a characteristic brewing feature – the height at which the finished drink from the teapot is poured into glasses. Moroccans so enhance its taste – by aeration of peppermint essential oils with air. And this is also necessary so that foam forms on the surface of the tea.

Moroccan tea is usually served hot, directly burning, but Europeans love it more cold with ice.

Herbal tea

Herbal tea is very relaxing. Carefully select its composition, because medicinal herbs have contraindications.

Traditional teas, including hibiscus, are often added to herbal mixtures..

Ideal combinations:

– lemon balm + sage + allspice + cloves;

– strawberry leaves + cherry leaves + vanilla pod;

– raspberry leaves + orange slices + cinnamon;

– peppermint + lemon + anise;

– chamomile + thyme + oregano + zest of lemon and orange.

This time we tried the mixture of “Ivan-tea + lemongrass + dogrose”.

Each of the ingredients is just a godsend for those who monitor their health. And together they are an amazingly delicious drink. Ivan tea is neutral. At the same time, it remotely resembles a combination of pears and apples. Lemon grass, often brought by tourists from Thailand and used in Asian cuisine, supplements the drink with light ginger-citrus notes, and rosehip with sourness and an abundance of vitamin C.

Pour the mixture with boiling water and leave for ten minutes to half an hour. If there is a thermos, do not neglect it. Let the herbs in it steam up for at least a couple of hours. You can leave tea in it all night to enjoy it instead of coffee in the morning.

Drink such tea with a piece of sugar. And even if tea purists betray you an eternal anathema, it’s worth it. Very tasty!
