Ginger - Elachi Tea / Ginger - Cardamom Tea

Ginger - Elachi tea is a flavorful aromatic tea which also has lots of health benefits. Since the ginger has calming properties, it helps to reduce the stress and tension. Apart from this, it strengthens immunity, reduces the menstrual discomfort, improves digestion and relieve nausea. The flavor of elachi gives a lovely aroma which is refreshing and healthy as well. I have included elachi powder in this recipe which can also be substituted with the crushed elachi. The ratio of water and milk can be adjusted according to one's taste bud. If one prefers the tea to be watery, just equal the ratio of milk and water.
