ginger cardamom tea recipe        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…Big Grin 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!

  23. Raks, this is how we make tea exactly! Daily. I too have long long stories about me drinking Tea. You did not bore me telling the sweet childhood memories. I always like to write about them and talk with friends listening to them. I'm looking for such a simple tea-shop style glass for my Tea post :D

  41. Lovely blog. I usually add a small pinch of crushed or ground black pepper along with the ginger. It adds a bit of spark to the tea :-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thanks so much for the recipe! I'm a real tea lover. I'm from Brazil, live in the US and have so many Indian friends; I love Indian food and I just enjoyed some ginger cardamom tea in my friend's house yesterday. Divine! now I guess I can make my own. Thanks again!

  43. Hi raji.. today i purposefully visited your blog to learn how to make tea.. I have the same habit as you, like when i drink tea, i do not sleep all night. So, i do not drink tea much, in spite of my love for it. But i make tea for my husband. Though he is a coffee lover, it mandates him to have tea after a heavy lunch. I always add cardamom while making tea. But my problem is whenever i make tea, the vessel gets burnt in the bottom. Do you have any suggestions to avoid this??

    1. Buy a good quality pan with thick bottom. Its easy to clean. Or u can keep stirring.

  44. tea looks so tempting. My husband makes the best tea in the world (or so I love to think). His tea is famous in our family. They drop in only to have tea made by him and will be willing to wait if he is not at home; haa haa haa.. funny no!! Try adding one crushed pepper to your tea or one pinch of pepper powder along with ginger and cardamon. It always makes you want more. My mom adds tulsi leaves to it too. I have friends who add pudina leaves; some add cinnamon and cloves too, but it gives a masala chai effect. I am a tea lover and can drink as many tea as can be served.
