Relaxing Middle Eastern Tea

Total Time

This tea is great with a middle eastern breakfast,pound cake or tea biscuits. Typically just sage or mint is used in tea in the mid east, but I use both sage and mint together. Its my trademark beverage, which everyone always brags about, but you can use just mint or just sage, depends on your preferrence. Sage tea is used often in the mid east for its medicinal purposes, such as upset stomach, alieve cramps e.t.c.


  1. Let mint and sage boil in a teapot full of water.
  2. Once boiling point is achieved add two tea bags.
  3. Dont let tea get too strong or dark.
  4. Add sugar as desired.
  5. Pour into your favorite cup and enjoy!

I didn't know sage and mint were used together in tea. When I was in Jordan, my in-laws would use fresh mint when it was available, if not then they would use sage. I got used to it, now if I don't have one of them in tea it tastes very plain.

This tea has been a recent favourite of mine ever since Auntie Peppermint Kitty sent me a box of French Vanilla Ceylon Tea. This was most relaxing and wonderful after a tiring and hectic day today. Thank you so much for the recipe! I will be making this until the box of tea bags lasts;)
