Masala Tea

masala tea
To wash down the seeyams, I made some masala tea. I'm not a very big fan of tea, but I make an exception when it comes to masala tea. I love masala tea for the strong flavour of spices in it. This is my take on masala tea and if you guys have any suggestions on how to enhance the flavour of the masala tea, please do share it with me.

teabags, ginger & cardamom
Place the teabags, sliced ginger and slightly crushed cardamoms into a pot with water and bring it to a boil.

Continue boiling for about a couple of minutes. Then, remove from heat and let the tea steep for about another couple of minutes.

Reheat if necessary. Strain the tea. Stir in evaporated milk and sugar and serve hot.



3 teabags/2 tbsp tea leaves
1 inch of ginger, peeled and sliced
10-14 cardamom, slightly crushed.
3 cups water
4-5 tbsp evaporated milk


1) Place the teabags, ginger and cardamom with 3 cups of water in a pot and bring it to a boil.

2) Continue boiling for 2 minutes and remove from heat.

3) Steep the tea for another two minutes. Reheat if necessary.

4) Strain tea. Stir in evaporated milk and desired amount of sugar and serve hot.

Note: Evaporated milk can be substituted with fresh milk or creamer.
