Recipe by petlover

My grandmother and the rest of the family drank this. please use sugar cubes only-and sip the tea through the cubes. My family also used the following brand of teabags ( still found ion the Jewish section of the grocery store)- "Swee-Touch Nee Tea"


  1. Put the tea bag ( they used a tea bag for more than one person since they were poor) into a heavy glass.My parents had special holders for the glass.Pour boiling water over. Let steep a few minutes until the tea is as dark as you like. Put sugar cubes in to your liking-don't dissolve them since they will dissolve themselves and you sip the tea through them.
