To us, the Europeans, for some reason it never occurs that tea can be salted. Well, it's not our custom! We poured tea, except, once or twice in childhood - to play a trick on a friend in the school cafeteria. Glutting the tea, sprinkled with salt, the friend, of course, frowned and refused to "treat" refreshment - it was tasteless. But, it turns out, the tasteless salty tea does not seem to everyone. For example, in Tibet green tea is always drunk with salt - this drink perfectly quenches thirst. It is customary to salt tea among the Kirghiz, and among the Mongols, and among the Kalmyks.
