UAE citizens begin their day with one special drink and end the day with it — it is time for you to try traditional Bedouin Karak tea.
Karak tea is a strong black tea with addition of sugar, milk, cardamom and the king of spices - saffron (gourmets often add ginger and cinnamon). This tea is a favorite Arabian drink with a rich aroma and pleasant taste, so they drink up to 10 glasses per day. It has no contraindications so everyone can drink it in any amount.
How to do?
1. You can taste traditional Bedouin tea in special tea cafes on Jumeirah Street or on the city's highways and sidewalks. Look in the window directed to the roadway or pedestrian zone - those are traditional express tea shops.
2. Arabs believe that a success in business and the embodiment of a cherished dream is waiting for everyone who tasted karak tea. So, before tasting a miracle drink, make a wish. What if it suddenly comes true :)
A glass of fragrant tea costs 2 dirhams.
