Sulaimani tea is a spiced black tea famous in Malabar region in Kerala. It is aromatic, flavorful drink that aids in digestion. This is usually served after a heavy meal in hotels. I had this in mandi restaurant in Dubai where they serve this at last after having a heavy biryani. I just love this drink and go for glass after glass.
This is prepared by adding few spices, lemon juice and mint leaves to the black tea. If you are a fan of tea then you should definitely give a try to this sulaimani. It is healthy and has lots of benefits.
