T is for Tea – The National Drink of Egypt!
Providing a cup of tea, called shay in Arabic, to visitors is pretty much mandatory here in Egypt. Sometimes served with fresh mint leaves, always served with plenty of sugar.
YumYum, would love to have mint plant, sigh… 🙂
Me, too! I’ve got plenty of other greens and herbs growing, but my one mint plant died years ago and I’ve never replaced it..
Do you have a garden in Sharm? Or a balcony?
I have a balcony and I think I could plant stuff in the front and the back. All I have so far is that poor excuse for Basilicum 😉
Oh, basil – that’s one thing I have that won’t STOP growing!
I wonder if the flower/garden shops in Sharm sell seeds? We got ours in Cairo.
I sort of doubt it, but then again, I might be wrong.
Mh, I should go and have a look one of these days. Need to get my lazy butt to the old market anyway… one of these days 😉
