Ingredients  

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoon loose tea
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder

SPICE MIX

  • 7 green cardamom pods
  • 4 black peppercorns
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick small
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg powder

Instructions

  • Grind all the spices together in a coffee grinder or with mortar and pestle. You can grind into a fine powder or keep them coarse. I prefer them coarse, so that I can strain later.
  • Put all the ingredients along with the spice blend into a saucepan and bring everything to a boil over medium heat.
  • Turn off the flame once boiled and leave covered for 3-4 minutes.
  • Pass through a strainer to catch all the large bits and loose tea.
  • Add sugar if you desire and and enjoy!
