Masala Chai

Have you ever tried a Masala Chai ? A delicious treat especially on chilly days.
Masala Chai means spice tea in Hindi and is a drink you will find throughout South Asia. Each family has their own way to prepare it. We suggest the following:

Put  two cups of water into a saucepan, add a stick of cinnamon (about one inch long)
6-8 green  cardomom pods, 6-8 whole cloves, 2/3 cup milk, sugar to taste (approx. 6 tsp. sugar)
Bring it to a boil and afterwards let it simmer for 10 minutes, add 3 teaspoon of black Darjeeling or Assam tea bring to a boil once more and afterwards strain the tea and enjoy!
