  • 2-3 cardamom pods
  • 1/4 inch ginger
  • 3-4 cloves

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • Bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
  • Add the tea leaves, cardamom pods, ginger, and cloves to the boiling water.
  • Simmer the mixture for 5-8 minutes.
  • Add the sugar and stir until it is dissolved. Remove the teapot from the heat.
  • Add the milk to the tea and stir. This step is important because it helps make sure the tea is not too strong.
  • Pour the tea through a strainer into cups. Enjoy!


  • Adding whole spices to the tea gives it a subtle spice flavor and aroma.
  • For a latte-like consistency, use more milk and less water.
  • If you prefer a stronger flavor, steep the tea for longer than recommended.
  • For a refreshment on hot days, refrigerate the tea before serving.
