If you have Indian Chai Masala, you can use a pinch or two of the masala instead of the optional items.

Instead of Sugar, honey can be used to sweeten. Sweeten to taste.

If you like strong tea, use Indian Lipton Loose Tea (1tsp) instead of the tea bags.


In a pan, add water, cardamom, clove, ginger and tea bag, bring to full boil. Add milk and boil. Watch pot carefully so that it does not boil over. Turn off heat, remove pan from the stove. Add sugar, stir.
