How to make Iranian Tea

Brewing the perfect cup of Haji Tea

Step 1: Put 1 heaped tsp. (2g) of tea per cup you want to make and 1 tsp. for the pot in a pre-warmed teapot.

Step 2: Pour boiled water equivalent to the number of cups you want to make into the teapot. One cup = 150ml.

Step 3: Let it brew for 15-20 minutes over a teapot warmer or on the hob at a low setting. Use a diffuser plate on a gas cooker. You can wrap the teapot in a towel to keep it warm.

Step 4: Pour into glass tea cups. Dillute with freshly boiled water if tea is too strong.
