    I'm no tea connoisseur, and I've not got the most delicate tastebuds, I eat and drink pretty much everything lol. What kind of teas are you looking for? I used to like making English tea with some spices, I used 2 cardomoms and1 clove per cup and it's lovely especially in winter when the spices warm you up. These days I'm mainly drinking herbal teas.
    himalayas huh?yea may be linked in one way or another huh

    im just open to any teas that taste nice where i dont need to add any sugar because tbh ive got a bit of a sugar addiction,
    also if it helps with my health and in aiding in losing weigh that would be a major bonus tbh

    i started watching this vid and about 8 mins in i thought i'd check out his site to see the prices, i was stunned, like wth charging so much for tea, dont they know im asian? lool

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-h7KNfRs4E&t=482s

    i do lurve having cinnamon in my tea, cant explain it but it adds such an amazing taste to the tea,
    bit like danya in curries, just adds nice flavour and makes it look amazing imo

    RE: Kashmiri tea
    I don't know if the extent to which people drink it in Kashmir, but my family comes from Kashmiri ancestry (although they lived in Punjab for generations) and the pink tea is a big thing in my family and it's considered to be part of Kashmiri food heritage. Admittedly though, me and my mum haven't been to Kashmir.

    I don't remember the name of the program, the title had "Italian" in it such as "so and so's Italian kitchen" but I can't remember her name. I also remember that the cook/chef had grown up in Wales but was from an Italian family. I think if you buy the green pasta, it'll probably have spinach in, cos spinach is better suited to mass production but traditionally in Italy, it was made with foraged nettles (at least that's what the presenter said). After WWII, many Italians were quite poor, so they foraged for food to survive, cos they couldn't afford much. It turned out these foraging traditions meant they ate better than kings and the foods were good for their long term health. They foraged for mushrooms, nettles, chestnuts, apples and would go into rivers to catch fish, octopus and shellfish and didn't eat much red meat cos they couldn't afford it- in fact many couldn't afford eggs and made pasta without it. A similar lifestyle in Greece is what led to the big fuss these days about how the "Mediterranean diet" is the healthiest in the world: active lifestyle herding goats in the mountains, foraging for local greens and herbs, breathing fresh sea air, a diet low in red meat (as they couldn't afford it), eating fresh seafood and goats cheese, consuming plenty of good quality olive oil. It means the key to good health in general is usually these same things: fresh air, active lifestyle, fresh local produce, foraged foods, don't eat too much red meat. I think in the West in colder climates, most people can't be bothered partly cos we're hooked on convenience and junk foods, partly cos we don't have a culture of growing our own food (or it's not that widespread, or many don't have the land for it), we have too much access to mass produced, cheap, factory farmed red meat which probably isn't good for us and also we live in cold climates where there's often less enjoyment in being active outdoors, so people travel in cars and don't walk or cycle enough.

    Another interesting thing I discovered in a book about herbal medicines, is that nettles is part of the arthritis treatment protocol. Apparently centuries ago, people with arthritic conditions were stung with nettles as part of a therapy to alleviate such conditions- nowadays people refer to bee venom therapy for similar reasons and the book was claiming there is some scientific merit to doing this (I'm too much of a wimp to try getting stung though lol)- maybe your getting stung is therapy and good for you lol. The book also said nettles are good for the joints and collagen and it's an anti inflammatory. I was so pleased with myself that I've incorporated it in my diet. I used to feel a bit guilty that perhaps wrapping it in buttery puff pastry will make it unhealthy but now I no longer feel guilty about it.

    Interesting you say that because i just thought it was a common type of tea which originated from the whole of Kashmir but yea obviously not if your aunty from there has never had it and she's from that region

    I got two packets yesterday, the pink kashmiri tea and also karak coffee which I had with breakfast today and that was good too but I do prefer the pink kashmiri chai one

    Is there any loose tea you could recommend?

    I got one of those loose teapots and want to start getting more into them in sha Allah

    I found that really intriguing as within the asian tea culture milk is a big part of the tea regardless to what type of tea it is...

    Anyways had the pink kashmiri chai at home and not gonna lie Im really impressed Alhamdulillah Allahumma Bareek 💯🔥👍
    Did you check the ingredients? Most of those kind of teas have milk powder in them which is just dried milk. That's why it probably still tasted nice and milky when you added the water in.

    I wonder where abouts in Kashmir they actually drink pink tea because my aunty lives there and she's never had it before it kind of feels like someone just made it up and named it after Kashmir

I got stung so many times but there was a plant called lambs ear which was supposed to help with the aftermath of a sting, I was amazed SubhanAllah seeing natural remedies out in the garden.

    I'm just starting my journey out on trying to eat better for my health so I'm still clueless about a lot and I'm not much of a cook to be honest, I try to do what is simple and easy. I'm avoiding dairy and carbs in general so I probably couldn't use them recipes but thank you for sharing, definately very inspiring.

    I think it's the roots of the dandelion which are more expensive. Since I'm inexperienced at the moment I'm going to buy the packet for now. My brother has a massive garden and they have all sorts of amazing things in there but none of us know what to do with any of it. InshaAllah slowly slowly I'm going to learn how to use them. There's so much potential out there

    Not had dandelion or nettle tea tbh what's the benefits to them?

    I want to start growing stuff in the garden but got no idea how and don't know anything about gardening but I would like to grow chillies In sha Allah

    Not so much biscuits but chocolate and crisps are a big fitna for me tbh lol 🤷
    Fennel tea is nice too. It is similar in taste to be honest but I have spearmint tea because it's very good for a health problem I have.

    i think there are lots of teas out there and every herb has some health benefits which we can benefit from. I don't know the benefits of dandelion or nettle tea from the top of my head but you can Google them. I think a lot of us have so many health problems now because of all the superficial food we are eating. We need to get back to nature and eat wholesome food and allow our bodies to heal themselves.

    Go for it InshaAllah. You can just buy a plant from a gardening centre and you just need to water stuff once in a while. Most plants come with some instructions that say where to place the plant and how often to water it

    You're right, I find that so baffling. Apparently dandelion leaves are sold in posh restaurants in France and they're quite expensive. Honestly, I get my dad to pick the nettles. I'd never recommend doing it by hand. You should wear gloves and also have some sort of scissors or shears handy to cut them. This time of year the plant is a bit mature with big leaves so might not taste as good- it's better to harvest them in March which is the best time of year for them. What you do is get a pan of boiling water, tip the nettles into it and boil for 90 seconds. In fact a minute would be enough to get rid of the sting, then pour into a colander to drain (when cool enough to handle, squeeze out as much moisture from it as possible as the water can ruin the taste). I prefer to chop the leaves and discard the stalks, then look up Italian spinach and ricotta recipes and instead of all spinach I'd suggest using half spinach and half nettles in the recipe.

    A very simple way of preparing them would be to stuff crepes (made with organic eggs) with a mixture of chopped nettle leaves, spinach, ricotta and a little parmesan. That's the simplest way to eat them. If you know how to make fresh pasta then use the mixture as a ravioli filling. My favourite way to eat them though is to get an oven dish, pour some marinara type tomato sauce on the bottom, then put a layer of stuffed crepes in the oven dish, then top with a layer of mascarpone and mozarella and bake in a medium oven for about 20-40 minutes (40 mins if the oven is not fan assisted, 20-30 if it's fan assisted) until the cheese on top starts turning brown. It's called spinach and ricotta cannelloni and is one of my favourite things to eat in the world, but it's rich and quite indulgent.

    I actually eat the nettles for health reasons. I have a ton of food intolerances including to several fruits and vegetables but I seem to tolerate nettles and it contains vitamin A, vitamin K, calcium and other beneficial nutrients. I think this combination of flavours works best. I personally would not recommend making it into desi salan or saag- I've never tried using it in desi dishes but it has a slightly different texture and I'm not sure it would work. One other recipe I've used it in though is a type of spinakopita with a twist: in a frying pan, saute red onions and blanched nettles for a couple of minutes in a tiny bit of olive oil (to remove any remaining moisture from the nettles), add a little salt and pepper (only a little salt cos feta is salty). Roll out puff pastry into a rectangle, then fill half of it with the nettle and onion mixture, scatter cubes of feta over it, then fold the other half of the pastry over it to make it a stuffed pastry square. Switch on a sandwich toaster and when it's hot, put the pastry square in there and leave it to cook. In my experience, a wheatflour pastry square takes about 18 minutes to cook in a sandwich toaster but gluten free pastry takes more like 25mins. If you don't have a sandwich toaster, press down the edges of the pastry square with a fork to seal it then bake in an oven preheated to gas mark 7 until the pastry puffs up and starts browning on top. Depending on the type of oven this should take about 20-25mins. I make my own pastry but you can buy it ready made from the shops.
