Brewing Tea the Yiddish Way, and in Yiddish (With English Subtitles)


So you think you know how to make a glezele tay (a glass of tea)? Do you think all it takes is to dip a tea bag into a glass of hot water? That's not the authentic Yiddish Way.

It takes Rukhl Schaechter and Eve Jochnowitz from Der Forverts (Yiddish version of The Jewish Daily Forward) to show you how to prepare tea the old־fashioned way and how East-European Jews used to drink it (hint: you need a sugar cube). In Yiddish with English subtitles.

The only thing that would make this "recipe" more authentic would be to serve it in a Yahrzeit glass.

Enjoy!
