My guest chefs made it inside my teapot but next time I would just do it in my favorite chai pot* for easier cleaning/viewing. The kids and I did a taste test and we all preferred it without milk (which is the way most patrons of Yemen Cafe seem to enjoy it when I’m there, as well. Personal preference! Try both…
- 2 1/2 tsp Al-Kbous loose tea
- 2 cups water
- 6 cloves
- 6 cardamom pods, cracked
- 1 1/2 tsp sugar
- sugar tbsp evaporated milk optional
In a pan with a spout, heat 2 cups of water, tea, cloves, cardamom pods and sugar.
Once boiling, let steep for 2 minutes.
If desired, add 1 tbsp evaporated milk, stir to combine and turn off the heat.
Enjoy immediately, or later as it’s quite nice chilled, as well.
