Tej aka Honey Wine - Alcoholic beverage created by fermenting water, honey and fruits, hops, or grains. A similar alcoholic drink is called Mead. Although, usually high in alcohol content, it is masked by the sweetness made by the honey. This drink is placed in a Berele (similar to a florence flask) and goes well with the spices from the Ethiopian food. Messob makes its own Honey Wine.
