Somali Shaah (Tea)

I love tea :D Need I say more?

What you'll need

- water
- milk
- sugar
- tea bags
- cardamom
- cloves
- cinnamon


1. Boil 4 cups of water
2. Add one cup of sugar
3. add your tea bags (I use 2)
4. crush 5-8 cardamom pods and throw them in the kettle
5. crush 1 cinnamon stick and throw it in the kettle
6. crush 3-5 cloves and throw them in the kettle (I add a little extra)
7. Boil for 5 minutes.
8. Serve black or with milk/cream.



  1. i like to actually use 2-3 cloves, and replace one of the tea bags with earl grey, it gives it an extra kick.

  2. dude, add some fennel and/or anise seeds too.. mmm mmmmmmmm, i want some right now!!
