a kettle of water is put on the burner to boil. Next, the
boiling water and a certain amount of tealeaves are combined
in a separate teapot and put on a low burner just until
the tealeaves rise to the top and threaten to 'boil over'.
Finally, the teapot is set on top of the tea kettle on a
low burner and allowed to 'yihder' or settle. There are
hundreds of different types of tea available on the market.
The best types are from Ceylon. Tea is so important in Iraq,
that it makes up a substantial part of the rations we've
been getting ever since the sanctions were imposed upon
