Omani Breakfast Tea


In most Omani homes, a cup of this tea is an essential breakfast item. So, I obliged. I only had some black tea, so I used that. Big mistake. Riley asked, "What kind of tea is this, Mom?" Oh, I just had some black tea. "Wait, you're giving us caffeine and sugar before we go to school?!?" Yes. 

He is so my child. He is my rule-follower. Dylan, on the other hand...

3 C water
3 T organic granulated sugar
2 t loose tea
1 t ground cardamom)
1-1/2 C milk

Put the water, sugar and tea into a teapot and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 2–3 minutes. Add the milk and ground cardamom. Bring it to a boil again. Then immediately remove from heat and strain into a mug. Enjoy piping hot.

  1. Im really lucky to find you post! You are surely doing a right thing. After carefully reading, I find that your article interest me. Do you drink Chinese Tea as me? Where you usually get your tea and teapots? Local mall or tea related websites?

  3. Surely nice article. I have read it carefully and benefited from it so much. Thanks. I also like tea, but I like Oolong Tea better. I suggest you to write more about oolong tea and that will surely attract more visitors.

  4. My boyfriend brought yesterday some tea with cardamon from Oman. I had it with milk. I believe it to be: oolong, cardamon and a flower... he said cammomile, but it seems more like violets to me. It's absolutely delicious!! If I can't find it anywhere, I plan to give it a try, mixing the ingredients myself, because I cannot see the jar he brought lasting too long :-)
    In a previous trip, I tried cardamon in a different type of tea in Marrakesh, which I enjoyed a lot, but this late one is far superior.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce
