Black Tea with Pepper and Anchovies

Black Tea with Pepper and Anchovies

A recipe from the old book “Pskov Tea” is taken as a basis, it is very simple: you need to take a teaspoon of black tea and a pinch of black pepper, pour a glass of boiling hot water over the tea and pepper mixture and infuse for five minutes. If desired, you can serve the tea with sugar or honey, and a piece of herring. We chose honey, replaced herring with anchovy and put it on rye Borodino bread… If you appreciate gastronomic contrasts, like Pedro Ximénez with dried tuna or port wine with salty cheese, you will definitely like it. In fact, you expect something throat-irritating from this drink, but it turns out neat, delicate and aromatic.
