Ingredients for making black tea with sage in middle-eastern bowls
  • Black tea of choice
  • Dried Sage leaves 
  • Sugar (Optional)

I used some fresh sage leaves from the garden, which I dried for a couple of days by room temperature. You can also dry sage in the oven, or simply use a sage tea bag. Regarding black tea, I’d recommend using any tea you like. Darjeeling, gunpowder, or earl grey can taste delicious. I added some white rock sugar for some sweetness.
