Tea is the magical drink that can solve day to day problems and melt stress away. For years Saudis and tea have been sharing a long term relationship. Sometimes it’s sweet, other times it’s not so sweet…just like any other relationship.
It used to be that you can pick from two kinds of tea, green or red. Saudis can now enjoy their cup of tea in any color or form. Nowadays, tea lovers are lucky with tremendous variety that they can choose from. There is red to green to black, to some weird tea that some how turns into a flower when you put it inside the tea pot.
For Saudis who like to start their day with a smooth warm “homey” sensation, tea with milk is the perfect combination. During the afternoon, Saudis make sure to schedule their tea time after lunch. Quality time can’t be completed without the perfect cup of tea. Red and green tea are normally the kind of teas Saudis like to serve in the afternoon in order to saitisfy newspaper readers & conversation starters and to satisfy laid back health conscience people. Saudis who like to try new things and always claim that they get their tea straight from either Japan or China, usually prefer their cup of tea with some flower scent…and why not with actual flower in it?
