Tea To Go


When shopping in the old style stores of Cairo (the majority of the stores since malls are in the minority) it is very common to be offered a cup of tea by the shop owner. All over the city tiny little tea shops supply tea to the store owners, work men and who ever may be in the neighbourhood.

Your pics make me miss Egypt so much! Egyptian people are some of the nicest in the world!

Is it served with milk? In Fiji, where it is sooo HOT, tea is the favorite drink -- served hot. Every house in the village will offer you tea, if nothing else is available.

It's generally served quite sweet and black but sometimes with mint or lemon.
