We admit that we just can’t do without our daily cup (well, two) of hot steaming tea, especially in winters. Tea acts not just as a stress buster but also provides us with numerous health benefits. But, have you ever experimented with the many different varieties of tea other than your regular cuppa?

While we are all aware of the common types, there’s also an interesting variation — Egyptian mint tea that you must try. Actor and TV host Mini Mathur recently shared its recipe that she learnt during her travel to Egypt.

“Egyptians (just like me) take their tea rituals very seriously…been getting hugs from friends for making this ever since I got back,” she wrote as she shared the recipe.
