Ancient Egyptian Cooking

Tea is the national drink of Egypt. Invitations to sit and drink tea together are an important part of the culture. Egyptians generally drink tea sweetened with large amount of sugar.
Turkish style coffee is also very popular. Tea and coffee are usually offered together at the countless small cafes that are scattered along any Egyptian street, called ahwa. These cafes also serve shisha, which is popular throughout Egypt. Traditionally, these places were reserved for men, but this custom has loosened in recent decades and it is not uncommon to see women in these cafes now. Wine and beer were the main types of drinks but they also drank fruit juices and milk. Interestingly enough, Ancient Egyptians did not mostly drink water as it was considered unclean since it was from the Nile, which was said to be bacteria infested from waste and excrement.
