I made half of the recipe for a large drinking bowl that I just love. I used 50/50 thyme and sage and a whole cinnamon stick. You have it right in the intro, comforting is an excellent description. Honestly, I didn't let it steep for the extra 5 mins, it was strong enough to suite me after the simmering and I just strained it into the bowl and added a tsp of Splenda. I need to add that it seemed to have a soothing effect on the stomach, I've had some upset there for a few days and this truly did help. Gotta love anything that tastes good and makes you feel better both physically and spiritually. :D
I like this tea. I thought it would be very strong... but it isn't, it's quite pleasant. I used Thyme that I grew and dried this summer. Its flavor and fragrance shone through. I crushed the cardamom pods, And added some Sage along with everything else. After I had my mug, I poured the rest of the tea in a quart jar and refrigerated it. This morning I'm enjoying a warm cup of Bedouin Tea as I write this. I like it a lot. Thanks for the recipe!
This is quite delicious! I'm enjoying it now while watching TV. It is quite soothing too. I figured I was going to like this from the ingredients. I ended up straining the herbs, spices and tea through a paper towel which worked perfectly. Made for February's Sun & Spice tag.
After a lunch of blackened trout, etc. this was a delicious end to the meal. Sage from the garden replaced thyme. Reviewed for SUN and SPICE Event NA*ME/Veg forums.
I think this recipe is made with what is called in English, wild oregano. It is translated to Thyme from Arabic but it is not the thyme we know.
