Singapore: Ganja tea

Ginger teaSome of the guys in the office in Muscat used to drink ginger tea with milk which was freshly made each morning and transported to the office in a large flask. They would refer to this brew as ‘ganja tea’ due to a slight mispronunciation of the initial ‘gin’ sound. When I pointed out what the word ganja meant, the morning tea ceremony took on a whole new meaning which we enjoyed with childish amusement.

The ginger tea (Teh Halia) in Singapore isn’t quite as good as Ahmed’s morning cuppa – but it’s close.
