Aynar - Lebanese Spiced Tea



8 cups of water
6 - two inch sticks of cinnamon
2 inch piece of fresh ginger
1 tablespoon of anise
2/3 cup of sugar
chopped walnuts

In a medium sized pot, add 8 cups of water & the cinnamon sticks

Add the sliced fresh ginger

Add the anise

Bring it to a boil, then cover, turn down heat and simmer for at least an hour and a half

This is the colour it should be after an hour and a half. If you would like it darker and stronger, leave it longer

Add 2/3 cup of sugar, strain into a teapot

Add a spoon of chopped walnuts to a tea glass

Pour hot Aynar over walnuts
