I make the tea as Ginger cardamom tea always. Very very rarely make the plain tea. My dad being a tea lover, I have seen my mom making tea this way. When it comes to tea, I have some beautiful memories related to it. It is not so very interesting, still, I remember it as they are so sweet to me. When I was studying 4th standard, my dad bought his own land in Salem and it was only across the road to where we were staying in the rented house. So when our own home construction started and after school, me and my brother go and watch the workers doing their work. My mom makes two kettles full of hot tea for the workers by herself and my father distributes to them. They used to tell the tea is awesome and they will be thanking for the ‘homemade’ tea as well. As kids, me and my brother enjoyed those days. The workers were too friendly, that we used to have a good time with them.
(Thanks to Vj for bearing me while I clicked this hot glass of tea. I found this cute ‘Tea glass’ in Daiso and thought it will be perfect for this post…)
Hope I have not bored you all with my old memories… Please don’t mind. I make tea two ways. One is boil the tea leaves in water and then top with little milk. The other way is fully boil tea leaves in milk itself. The tea recipe I am sharing now is the second way. Vijay being coffee lover, I make tea rarely. He doesn't complains when I make tea, but still I know he will like coffee than tea, so never compel myself to make tea. I love tea for sure than coffee, but I have a big problem. If I take tea, I will be sitting like an owl in the night. Yeah, I don’t get sleep! Still some times, very rarely I do make tea and drink. Ok, now on to the recipe!

Enjoy the tea hot, its a great tasting and great flavoured tea, ginger gives a mild spiciness and cardamom lifts the flavour. Divinely! :)
