The Iranian way of making Persian tea

The Iranian way of making Persian tea

All you need is a nice china teapot, loose tea, a couple of cardamom and some rose petals.

Place a generous amount of loose tea, slightly crush the cardamoms in your hand and put over the loose tea with the rose petals in the teapot. Then add boiling water.

Put the lid back on and place the teapot on top of the kettle or samovar while it’s simmering on the stove in order to keep the tea warm.
