A good cuppa of hot steaming tea gives miracle power to start the day. And when you need an extra exuberance to your ‘chai’, brew a masala chai.
This ever-green recipe is handed down in families from one generation to the next.and never fails to work wonders to your mood. It not only refreshes your senses but will also give a strong immunity against common cold, relief from headache and cure cough.
My home style of making tea is bring the water to a boil first along with flavorful spices ginger, cardamom and sugar. After that add tea powder to come to a good boil. lastly pour equal amount of milk to achieve nice consistency and aroma. And it should be kadak..
Some like adding more spices ( lemongrass. peppercorn, cinnamon, bay leaves, nutmeg, fennel seeds, mint leaves and tulsi leaves) in their tea. But I love these two flavors in my tea. You can try different method and let me know.
