  1. Boil water & add all ingredients other than milk, simmer for 2 minutes.
  2. In the cup, pour out the tea and then add milk little by little till you get the right color of your choice
  3. The idea is to not let the milk out-taste the tea flavour.
  4. Try pouring the tea from 1cup to another starting near-by & gradually distancing as you pour it all out
  5. Repeat a few times to aerate the drink & get it light & frothy on top; else use a mini froth-maker.

Tip: If you use full cream milk, then boil 1/2 cup of this with 1cup water & all the remaining ingredients, then simmer until you reach your desired consistency color before pouring out. You can add 1 clove or 2 peppercorns to the boiling tea if you have a cold/flu.

1.25 cup water

1/2 inch ginger
1 cardamom/ 1/2 tsp cardamom pwd
1-2 tsp sugar
