Honey Wine @ The Sisters Restaurant, Gondar, Ethiopia

Tej (Amharic: ጠጀ?, pronounced [ˈtʼədʒ]; Tigrinya: ሜሰ?, mes, Oromo: daadhi) is a mead or honey wine that is brewed and consumed in Ethiopia and Eritrea. It is flavored with the powdered leaves and twigs of gesho (Rhamnus prinoides), a hops-like bittering agent that is a species of buckthorn.[1] Tej is usually homemade, but throughout Ethiopia it is available in “tej houses” (tej betoch, singular tej bet (ጠጅ ቤት)).”
