Samovar Tea (Chai it Simawar)
Everything you need to know about making Samovar tea.
Servings: 4 cups
- ¼ cup loose earl grey tea
- 3 to 5 cardamom pods (optional)
- Assyrian sugar cubes
Fill the body of the samovar with water. Plug the cord in, and turn on the knob, if your samovar has one. Bring water to a boil. This can take approximately 30 minutes.
Fill the teapot with the tea, and the cardamom, if using.
Add boiling water to the tea pot.
Place the filled teapot on top of the samovar. Allow to simmer for at least 15 to 30 minutes.
Place a strainer over a tea cup and pour some of the tea into the cup. The amount will depend on how strong you prefer your tea.
Finish by filling the cup with enough hot water to achieve the desired tea strength.
