Tarkalean tea

A glass of Tarkalean tea

Tarkalean tea was a type of tea produced by the Tarkaleans.

Tarkalean tea was served in the bar on Deep Space Station K-7 during the 23rd century. Upon being informed that the station's bar did not serve Raktajino, Odo ordered a Tarkalean tea. (DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")

Julian Bashir often enjoyed Tarkalean tea, usually preferring it "extra sweet". (DS9: "The Wire") Bashir often drank this beverage while he ate lunch with Garak. (DS9: "Past Prologue", "Cardassians", "Distant Voices") He also drank it while on vacation at Risa in 2373. (DS9: "Let He Who Is Without Sin...")

Kira Nerys enjoyed the beverage as well, however, she preferred hers more on the bitter side. (DS9: "Hippocratic Oath")

Tarkalean tea was considered very soothing to Humans experiencing morning sickness. Dr. Bashir gave Kasidy Sisko a cup of the beverage to help ease her morning sickness in late 2375. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")

"Tarkalean" was misspelled as "Tarkalian" in the script for "What You Leave Behind". A similar error was made in the script for "Hippocratic Oath" where the spelling "Tarkalian" appeared in the pronunciation guide, but the spelling was corrected to "Tarkalean" later on in the script.

Tarkalean tea was first seen in DS9: "Past Prologue".
