Ginger Cardamom Tea Recipe - Ginger Tea Recipe

Ginger Cardamom Tea Recipe
Ginger Tea / Ginger Cardamom Tea is my fav though I usually prefercoffee to tea but hubby loves this tea or even masala tea....And the flavoured tea is something he loves to have.I was waiting to get a local tea glass to click this and post it here.... and finally here I am with this post. Hot tea with bajjis or biscuits....yummm!!

I am just back from a 2 day trip to my perimmas place, we had been there for a function and had a great time. Though it was a hectic back to back travel for the past 2 days, meeting relatives, cousins and their family after quite some time is always refreshing which compensated for the tiredness. Just back after waving mittu and sitting with my cup of tea writing this post :)

My Notes:

  • I usually use 3 roses tea or sometimes tajmahal. You can use your preferred tea brand.
  • You can also add sugar at the final stage after switching it off.
  • Adjust tea powder and sugar according to your taste.
  • Sometimes I add 2-3 tbsp water as hubby prefers it that way but I love it only with full milk :)
