Mmmmm……..warm, spicy, milky, sweet, fragrant tea. Why buy it from a cafe or pre-packaged when you can make it fresh?
There are variations to the spices in different regions of India (as well, I’m sure, from one household to another), but I like to use fresh ginger, cinnamon, peppercorns, whole cloves, a dash of nutmeg, and whole cardamom, all which can be found in a well-stocked kitchen.
After the spices boil together, add some perfumed tea, milk, and sugar and let them simmer.
Using a strainer to catch the whole spices and tea leaves, pour into a cup and enjoy!
Perfumed tea? Any recommendations?
Yes. I use the amazingly fragrant Ahmad Tea's Aromatic Earl Grey, which I can buy at my local Arab grocery. It's also available on Amazon. One tin lasts quite a long time. http://www.amazon.com/Ahmad-Aromatic-Earl-Grey-17-6-Ounce/dp/B001E5DWR8
Note, this is different from the company's regular Earl Grey.
