Notes about this recipe

    I skipped the tea step because I can't have caffeine in the evening. I'll look for decaff to try it again as written. It wasn't as complex as I'd expect given the variety of spices. We did like the sourness of the lime juice and the sharpness of the red onion garnish. I used hot kashmiri pepper which I understand has less heat. Next time I'll find the proper pepper or increase the kashmiri.

    Soak beans in tea in fridge for at least 8 hours or you can't taste the tea.
