My day starts with this cup of Ginger Tea, has been my lifelong companion ... friends who have visited my house will remember this tea & our never ending conversations that go along with this. If you are prone to colds very often, this is the Tea for you ...


Heat 2 big mugs of water, add

1.5 tablespoons Black Tea (1/2 tablespoon more if you prefer a more stronger tea)

2 tablespoons fresh crushed ginger

3 pinches of Masala Tea Mix (recipe below)

Masala Tea Mix: (Makes 24 cups of tea)
Crush 24 green cardamoms (with skin),
18 whole black peppercons (or replace 1/4 teaspoon black pepper powder)
1 teaspoon anise seeds
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder (you can skip this if you add fresh ginger)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder

After this comes to a rolling boil, add 1 big mug of milk, switch flame to medium or medium low, let it simmer for 8-10 minutes till the masalas blend well with the tea.

Strain, pour in tea mugs & add as much sugar as you like.

Prepare & enjoy !!!
