Karak tea at Shay Madhboot, Abu Dhabi
I wasn't familiar with karak tea until I read about it in a book about things to do in Abu Dhabi. It is black tea, brewed strong, then flavored with cardamom with evaporated milk as a sweetener. We had the one with saffron on top. It was really good and would make an excellent dessert drink.
We had ours at Shay Madhboot. It is a small cafe in a very small shopping area, near the Thai Embassy The blinds are closed to block out the intense morning sun. They also serve snacks and light meals.
