Persian Tea

by on March 2, 2012

Persian Tea plays a very big role in Traditional Persian cooking. Almost all Iranians drink tea after their meal. Some drink tea a number of times throughout the 24 hrs. Learning the history behind Persian Tea and how it differs from other cultures is therefore significant.

In the video, I first teach you the very traditional way of making tea. Then, I will take you into the kitchen and show you a modern more efficient way of doing it. Please be sure to watch the video to the very end.

If you like to learn more about Traditional Persian cooking, be sure to check out KShar’s Sofreh – A Modern Guide to Traditional Persian Cooking. I look forward to reading your comments and questions. Please share this video with your friends and family.

It sure has Lena, the tea ceremony was a big thing in old days, that is why I am trying so hard to show the Iranian culture through cooking.

We always have tea after dinner, and it’s my favourite part of the day…unwind, relax, spend time together and chat over a cup of tea, cookies and fruit. I always make the cookies myself, maybe that could be another video idea? Persian pastry! But I will NEVER learn to drink tea the Iranian way, after all those years I still drop my sugar into the glass and use a spoon :D

Salam baraye It is too late for wheat, need to use lenttis (addas). soak the lenttis for 24 hours and then speared it in any dish or flat with a rim ( zarf shoma bayad labe dashte bashe ) so , water wont run over the dish when you water it. cover it with a wet cloth and water it over the cloth every other day and when it shoots the green ( after 4 days ) you uncover it and let it grow.

No you can not put it in oven you of course keep it in the kitchen with good light exposure. The cloth needs to be a cloth not a towel, it should not be heavy towel, use cheese cloth, double fold. You can get the cheese cloth in any art and craft store.
