Our Green Tea
« on: June 10, 2016, 09:16:50 PM »
There are several brands available in stores, but this is how I make mine at home.

Water to measure about 5 cups
One inch of shredded / finely chopped ginger
8-10 mint leaves
Fresh lemon grass about 1/2 a fistful
Fresh pounded cinnamon 2 inches
2-3 fresh ground cardamom
One slice of fresh Orange with the skin
A small pouch of green tea (non flavoured) or green tea leaves
Sugar Free tabs to taste

Boil & let simmer for a while. The taste grows with time. Reuse as you like.
Picture attached.

Hi Ami,

Your green tea is very famous, and it's lovely.
