About Sulaimani Tea Recipe
According to folklore, Sulaimani tea is believed to have Arab origins. It is said that Prophet Mohammed used to enjoy drinking a beverage called ghava with dates and black pepper (but no tea) added to it. With time, the Arabs inherited the tradition of drinking ghava but made some slight changes to the ancient recipe.
Sulaimani tea is made with whole spices, jaggery and lemon. Whole spices like cardamom, cinnamon, ginger is used in the tea. Sulaimani tea is sweetened with jaggery instead of sugar which makes a refreshing beverage.
