Tea Beverages

Mongolian tea doesn't compare with fine indian tea, like eg. the british like to celebrate it. In fact, those are two entirely different beverages. The mongolian variation is prepared with salt, and may include solid food like rice, noodles, or Bansh. because of this, not the fine tea leaves are used, but rather the more course parts of the tea plant.

The distinction between tea and soup is blurred in the mongolian cuisine. The title of this page could therefore just as well (and even more accurately) be "Tea foods" instead of "Tea beverages". Nonetheless, all the recipes listed here have in common that they are prepared with the help of tea.
