Ginger Tea Recipe

Sweetened Tea, Brewed With Milk, Ginger, and Spices (Chai)

Loose tea from Indian groceries is much stronger than most tea sold in tea bags in this country. If you want a stronger tea, you can use 3 TBS of loose Indian tea and omit the tea bags.
Mix in saucepan:
3 cups water
3 cups whole milk
3 TBS sugar
1 1/2 - 3 TBS grated fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons tea masala*
contents of 9 tea bags
1 TBS loose Indian tea
3 mint leaves (opt.)
Bring to a boil, cover, turn the heat to low, and simmer for about 2 minutes. Strain into a teapot, pitcher, or individual cups
*To make tea masala, mix well together:
3 TBS ginger powder
1/2 TBS clove powder
1/2 TBS black pepper powder
1 TBS cinnamon powder
1 TBS cardamom powder
You can save a batch of tea masala and use it over time - no need to make it fresh each time.
