Greek Mountain Tea (1 cup)
Break 1 or 2 stems into thirds. Fill your briki (or a pot) with water and turn heat to medium.
Place tea stems in the water and let boil.
Once boiling, remove briki from heat and allow tea steeping for about 7 min.
Pour tea into cup using a strainer to catch the tea stems. It is excellent plain but also pairs very well with honey.
And for a refreshing alternative, it makes a great iced tea. Just make a larger pot, put it in a pitcher in the fridge and enjoy it throughout the day.
