Elachi & Saunf Tea

When it comes to tea, we love to have with lots of flavor and variations. My today's post is one of my recent favorite tea prepared using elachi and saunf. Instead of boiling tea powder with milk, I use the below method for all varieties tea to get a perfect color and taste. Resting time after adding tea powder, enhances the flavor and taste. This can be served along with breakfast or cookies and personally, I love it with Marie biscuit.

Ingredients :

1 1/2 Cups Milk 
4 Tsp Tea Powder ( I have used Red label in this recipe ) 
3 Tsp Brown sugar ( Can be substituted with regular sugar ) 
1/2 Tsp Saunf ( Perunjeeragam ) 
2 Elachi / Cardamom

Method :

Crush elachi and saunf using mortar and pestle and keep aside.

Boil the measured cups of milk and switch off the flame.

Add the crushed elachi and saunf along with tea powder and brown sugar.

Close it with the lid and keep aside for 5 minutes.

Now switch on the flame and boil it for 3 minutes or till the color changes according to your taste.

Once done, strain the tea using strainer and serve hot. 

Serving Options :

Serve hot with Marie biscuit or cookies.

  1. I love how strong the tea is... just the way I like it. I always make with cardamom and dry ginger, and saunf is only for masala tea... must make this combination...
