Relaxing Middle Eastern Tea

"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."

    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.
