      Alright Miss Corrigan! Will do as soon as I can… You know shawirma (as we call it) is very hard to make at home… because you don’t have the stacked layers of chicken and fat roasting… When I say it’s hard, I mean it’s hard to get it like the store bought stuff, but making it itself isn’t so very… Please though, be patient with me, I’ll try to do my best to post up a recipe soon…

    Tea. I don’t know the name, but I know some of the ingredients. A local “Greek” restaurant has a hot tea in the back for he and his employees. The owner is Syrian. I go there enough, I have learned they will sell it despite not being on the menu. It has sage and cardamom and black tea. I think he also puts rosewater and maybe orange water in it but I am unsure about this. The restaurant will not get less of my business if I get a recipe, but I am dying to be able to make this at home. It is sweet, light but spicy and very delicious. Do you have any insight on what this is and how I should make it? I am usually a coffee drinker but this is the kind of tea I can love to drink in between.

      To be honest, these things aren’t easy to perfect. The way tea is made in Syria is by boiling tea leaves (not the type you get in bags, of course, I mean the dried and packed tea leaves) in a stainless steel (or some metal) kettle on the stove for as long as it takes to make it black (this is a very subjective thing, to be honest, but usually after the water boils, you put in the leaves, and boil it for another 3ish mins).
      I suppose this restaurant just adds in dried sage, and a cinnamon stick to their tea while it boils. Depending on the taste will depend on how much and for how long you put in the sage/cinnamon (if it’s subtle, you put it in a few leaves and a small stick 30 seconds before removing the kettle to infuse).
      In Syria, rosewater or orange blossom come concentrated in tiny bottles, so only a drop is enough to add a rosewater flavour to the tea. In western countries, I’ve noticed it comes in a bottle, so perhaps anywhere up to 1/2 a teaspoon for a full kettle would be good.
      I can’t give you a definite on which of the two he uses (rose or orange) because the two are nearly equally used in Syria. I suppose there isn’t much of a recipe I can give either, it’s all very subjective like I said, but perhaps the “guidelines” above can help you get a step close to making this tea. What I can definitely tell you is the kettle on the stove part – it’s mainly how tea is made in Syria (electric kettles are rare) and the boiling helps infuse all the flavours.
      Hope this helps! Let us know how you go πŸ™‚

So, what do you think?
