Quite thought provoking… it is a very important yet difficult trait to develop. Many of us tend to panic and break down in difficult situations and I am no different. There were times when I have felt helpless, so desperate to seek solutions to matters that I know that I will not get instant relief, but still I have tried to see if I could do something and despaired. Not anymore, Alhamdulillah. It takes a lot of matters to reach that stage – a shift in your thought process, a change in your circumstances, a direction from the Almighty himself…
After having posted a heavy duty biriyani yesterday, I thought of posting something that goes so well after a meal of biriyani. Don’t we all feel sleepy as soon as we are done with a heavy meal? We all do, or at least I do! Most of the time at home, we always settle for a cup of hot black tea to settle down the uneasiness. If the tea has a tinge of mint, then the process will be much faster. Just sharing with you today my take on black tea with mint…
- 2 cups fresh water
- ½ tsp tea powder
- 1 sprig mint leaves
- Sweetener of your choice
- Pour the water into your tea saucepan and bring to boil.
- As soon as you start seeing bubbles on the side, add in the tea powder along with the cleaned mint leaves.
- Once boiled, switch off the flame and leave the tea for a couple of minutes for the mint to seep in.
- Sieve and serve in your cups or glasses, sweetened with sugar or honey, as required! Seriously good for settling down any tummy heaviness... 🙂
