Happy Hour: Tej (Ethiopian Honey Wine)

The best drink to pair with your Ethiopian meal is Tej. It's known as "honey wine," but is actually a mead that is indigenous produced from pure wild flower honey and specialty hops imported from Ethiopia. It's pale yellow and contains no carbonation. If you can't find a bottle near you, you can purchase it online at brotherhood winery for $11 (thanks HonestMuffin!), or you can do the next best thing and make a batch of your own.
