i learned this from my friend rosha. she said, ‘we never ask if you want milk or sugar!’ this tea is sweet, milky, and delicious.
bring to a soft boil:
- water/milk mix, approx half & half. i use almond milk and it tastes great.
- green cardamom pods: 2-3 per cup
- a cinnamon stick
- a few pinches of nutmeg
- 1 – 2 tbsp brown or yellow sugar per cup (but white sugar is ok too)
- optional: a few cloves, a bit of cinnamon, etc.
when it reaches a boil, add some tea. you can add one bag or tsp of loose tea per cup: orange pekoe/loose leaf darjeeling, assam, whatever. let it boil for a few minutes, then serve. you can scoop out the cardamom pods and tea bags, or if you used loose leaf you’ll have to pour through a sieve.
