    Delicious. A bit like chai. Yesterday I added a bit of milk, today I didn't. Good either way. Made for African Recipe Tag AND Make your saved recipes tag in the diabetic forum.

    Slightly bitter but as I got closer to the bottom of the cup it became more evident. Not at all how I remember Somali tea as being very sweet. I did replace the sugar with creamed honey to be healthier and may have used more than called for but certainly not less. Milk would tone this down. But from what I have read this combination is to be drunk black. Made for ZWT7 Africa, for my team, Food.Commandos

    This was absolutely wonderful with the African Roobios loose leaf tea I used. Wonderful spice from the peppercorns. Made for ZWT 7.
