    Chai zatar ~ Thyme Tea

    A favourite in offices these days, this drink has its roots in tradition. Thyme is said to be able to give the lungs strength as well as help the circulation and restore lost energy.
    Some people drink it from an English size tea cup, others prefer the more traditional small tea cup.

    2 cups water
    sugar to taste
    1 tablespoon fresh or dried thyme leaves

    Boil water and sugar for two to three minutes and add the thyme leaves. Continue boiling for further five minutes. Strain leaves and pour tea into a vacuum flask. Infuse for 15 minutes and serve.
