What a lovely soothing tea. I enjoyed the flavors very much. A beautiful colored tea, that smelled and tasted great. I drank mine with a little honey and no milk. Just perfect, the honey brought out all the different spices. Thank you for sharing this tasty drink. I will make this one again. Made for Comfort Cafe SnowQueen Round 01/10 :)
A very good tea, heady with the aromatic scents and flavours of India! I don't take sugar or milk, so enjoyed mine black. I offered some to DH and he preferred it with honey (also no milk). I made mine on the stove top, and helped myself in the course of the afternoon, I'll drink tea hot or cold! This was refreshing and energising, and would certainly accompany Indian cuisine well. Thank you Charmed, lovely!
These are the exact same ingredients my Mum uses to make tea (she sometimes adds in a small piece of ginger too) except she makes it on the stove-top in a saucepan. She first boils the water with the tea leaves and the spices, then adds in sugar (if using) and milk and boils till it rises up, stir in with a spoon, boil and let it rise again, repeat for about 3 more times. That way it's rich, strong and creamy. I don't take sugar or milk with my tea, so I make mine in the teapot! This does make a delicious cup of tea! Thank you, Charmed! :)
This was delicious after I got in from walking Maisy! I was soooo cold and even my nostrils were freezing together! Brrrrr... I have designated one of my coffee presses to tea now! It was a brilliant idea to use a coffee maker specifically for tea! I really like cardamon and cloves and cinnamom together! I used honey and and half and half. DH had his without the milk as he says it kills a good cup of tea! Jelly
i tried, this is absolute medicine
This is GOOD! I used Peet's extra fancy Assam. More work than throwing some tea lraves into a filter bag, but a nice change of pace. Good on a cold, overcast winter day with some plain crispy wafers.
This was good, however, not quite what we've had at the Indian restaurant. I will make it again but use half and half or cream instead of milk to see if I can get the creamy consistency that restaurant's tea has.
