Sulaimani Chai / Lemon tea

As legend has it- about five thousand year ago there was a Chinese king called Shen Nung. One day he left his palace and rode his horse in the fields. He became very thirsty and found some dirty water. He decided to boil the water to purify it and made a small fire and boiled some water. Some leaves fell into the pot,when the water became cool, he drank it and realized that it tasted delicious. Shen Nung was the first person to drink tea. He returned to his palace and told the people about the drink. Soon tea became popular in China.















Sulaimani tea is a popular drink in the Malabar region. It’s black tea with sugar and Lemon Juice. It is generally made light and sweet. It is believed to aid digestion and so is always served after a heavy meal in the malabar region. A very popular accompaniment to Biriyani.You can use tea leaves or tea bags for the recipe.


Ingredients:
  1. Tea leaves/tea bag - 1/2 tsp or 1 tea bag
  2. Water - 2 cups
  3. Sugar - 3 tsp or more to taste
  4. Fresh lime/lemon juice - 2 tsp

Method:
Bring the water to a boil and turn the flame off.
Add the tea leaves or tea bag and let it steep for five minutes covered.
