Serves 2 Cook: 6 min

Ingredients

Water 1 1/4 cups
Milk 1 1/4 cups
Tea leaves 2 heaped tsp
Sugar 2 level tsp
Cardamom seeds 1/2 pod
Lemongrass 1cm
Cassia bark (or cinammon) sticks 1 cm
Dried ginger peel 1 tsp

Method

1
Here are the ingredients (clockwise from top: lemongrass, cardamom, ginger, tea leaves, cassia bark), plus water, milk and sugar.
2
Put the water in a pan and bring to the boil. Add the tea leaves and spices and boil for 1 minute.
3
Pour in the milk and bring to the boil. Watch it doesn't overflow! Turn the heat down to medium.
4
Keep the tea on a rolling boil for 3-4 minutes. Strain into teacups and enjoy while it's hot.

Tips & Note

Even if you don't take sugar in your tea normally, Indian masala chai could do with some sweetening to counterbalance the spices. As an alternative, you could try fresh mint leaves instead of ginger and lemongrass.
