    Nif's Note:

    Tej, or tejj, is an Ethiopian sweet wine, similar to mead, that is typically made from fermented honey and a special kind of hops called gesho. It is traditionally served from a vase-like vessel called a berele. If you can't find tej or mead in your neighborhood, this recipe is a rough approximation. I tried this once at an Ethiopian wedding and it's quite delicious! Enjoy!

      This was so good and so sweet! It was also light, as I find some wines are heavy and dense.

      I'm not a big wine drinker, but I was having guests over and they like wine so I figured I would round out my meal with this sweet-looking beverage. It was a perfect complement to my other dishes and was very good. Very smooth and light. Thanks!

      This was so good! Very much like mead, but much lighter in taste. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT7 - Africa.
