The Secret To The Best Southern Sweet Tea In The World!

  There are a few keys to great tasting iced tea. I absolutely love good tea, and I find bad tea served in a restaurant such a disappointment. A woman I know who owned a successful Cajun restaurant in Southeast Texas told me serving good tea was an important part of the restaurant’s success. I believe she was right. Now, for the key to great tasting tea: Good, pure water Good ice Good tea My secret tea blend is 1001 Nights tea from the Ceylon Tea Company. A few years ago I discovered this delicious tea, and I buy it by the case.  I use one to two bags along with a family sized tea bag of regular black tea. Red Diamond, a southern tea, is my preferred brand of black tea. I think it’s smooth and makes delicious tea. 1001 Nights Tea The Original Ceylon Tea Company’s 1001 Nights, is a mystical blend of pure, high mountain-grown tea from Ceylon and fragrant flowers & fruit flavors that is sure to bring countless nights of romance and intrigue. Like the fabled Scheherazade herself, 1001 Nights is becoming a legend in its own time. It is SUBLIME!

Grind in an electric grinder. I use one grinder especially for spices. After grinding, stir the spices and mix well. This is your masala (spice) mix. Store in airtight container. Chai Recipe Add masala mix to pan according to taste. I usually add about 1/2 tsp. per mug. Turn on heat just long enough to unlock aroma. Be careful as you do not want to scorch the spices. Just heat until fragrant. Then, go to next step. Traditional chai is made with equal parts milk and water ( I use about 70% water, and 30% milk) add sugar or honey to taste.  Add water/milk mix to pan. I use a mug to measure.  Add 1 tbsp sweetened condensed milk (optional). Then, heat mixture. When the mixture comes to a boil,...
