A NOTE FROM YOUR TEA SOMMELIER FOR YOU

According to folklore, Sulaimani tea is believed to have its origin in the Arab tradition. It is said that Prophet Mohammed used to enjoy drinking a beverage called ‘ghava’ which had dates, black pepper, but had no tea or sugar. Over the years, the recipe changed course and once it was introduced to the Malabar coast of India by Arab traders, it took a different form. Tea got added to the drink and is what we know today as Sulamani Tea. ‘Sulaiman’ in Arabic translates to ‘man of peace.’

This tea-botanica is known to be had as a digestive drink after heavy meals, especially after having biryani during festive occasions. It is also known to improve gut health and reduce bad cholesterol. No matter how elaborate a meal, there is always room for a tiny glass of Sulaimani. But I believe this hot Sulaimani tea can also fit in for any day when you want to drink something soothing and hot. Languages blend, borders melt, and cultures meet, all over a steaming glass of Sulaimami tea, a beverage that bridges an intensely multi-cultural society, and apparently does a good job at that.
