Elaichi (Cardomom) Tea

I love tea and although I’ve been drinking a lot of green tea recently, I don’t think anything beats home made ‘elaichi chai’. Elaichi (cardomom) is a herb which takes the form of seedpod. You can find them at all Indian grocery stores. It adds a distinct, somewhat sweet, pleasant flavor to tea.
Ch ch ch check it out:

Serves 2

What we need:
2 Cup of water
1 Tea bag of your choice (It’s all about Tetleys for me)
2 Cardomom pods
Sugar to taste
Milk to taste

How we do:

  • Boil water
  • Place the tea bag in a kettle and add the boiled water.
  •  Add cardamom powder to the kettle.
  • Bring to boil on medium heat.
  • Once it has boiled, turn the heat off. Strain the tea into two cups.
  • Add sugar and milk according to taste.
  • Enjoy 🙂
