    Last year a friend of mine from Hong Kong got a packet of Chinese tea leaves called "Poli", I am not a tea lover so never used it but few days while reshuffling all those kitchen cabinets I saw that tea leaves packet lying all alone in one dark corner, and so this how it came into use, I guess this the reason I love culinary souvenirs and never say "no" for them as they always add value to your repertoire.


    • 3 tsp good quality tea leaves
    • 3 Cups of water
    • 2 Cup sweetened orange juice
    • Mint leaves, to garnish
    • Sweet Lime slices, to garnish


    1. Place the tea leaves in a large bowl. Heat water in a pan and bring to a boil.
    2. Pour the hot water over the tea leaves and cover it with a lid and set aside for 5 minutes. Strain the tea in a jar, keeping the liquid and discarding the leaves.
    3. Stir in the orange juice and sugar syrup if required. Stir. Let sit in the fridge until served.
    4. Serve over ice with a lemon slice and fresh mint leaves.
