Hot off the stove with the floral fragrance rising to greet you with each sip; though iced tea is an equally tasty treat. Add your desired sweetener to lift the flavour of the spices.
For some cultural panache, serve it in tulip glasses displayed on a decorative tea tray; otherwise, for a tea as elegant as they come, serve in your finest china. Pour small amounts of tea at a time, keeping the rest of the tea hot in the teapot, and then just keep the tiny refills flowing.
Pairs Well With
Persian chayi is a fragrant treat unto itself but is also beautifully complemented by a traditional selection of dates and raisins or your favourite bickies. At least once you must try sipping it in true Persian style: through a sugar cube perched between your teeth!
Morning, afternoon and anytime between: all times are good for this tea. Although the evening is only for those souls who can handle a late-night caffeine buzz.

1 tsp per cup
4 – 5 min
Add 1 tsp of tea to a teapot. Pour in 1 cup of water boiled to 100°C. Steep for 4 – 5 min. Strain into cup. Sweeten to taste.
Brew it the traditional Persian way
Boil freshly drawn ambient water in a teakettle to 100°C;. Warm a small teapot by rinsing with the hot water. First, prepare a tea concentrate by adding 2 – 3 tbsp of tea to the teapot and fill with the hot water. Steep covered for 10 – 15 min. For best results, brew in a ceramic or fine china teapot placed on a simmering samovar or use a stovetop double tea kettle/pot to keep the tea warm while steeping. To serve, pour the tea concentrate from the teapot and adjust to your desired strength by topping up with hot water from the teakettle. Sweeten to taste. Best served in traditional istikan tea glasses (Turkish tulip cups). If sharing, impress guests by serving on a decorative tea tray. Enjoy on its own or with a traditional selection of dates and raisins and sip through a sugar cube between your teeth in true Persian style!
