  • Add more sugar based on your taste.My mom always adds less sugar because the sugar should not supress the taste of tea.
  • You can make this tea by adding ginger or cardamom alone.
  • Tea tastes good only if water is added to the milk.So a tea should not be thick.
  • If u want strong and nice colored tea,add more tea powder and allow it to boil for more time.

Try this easy and flavorful tea.Enjoy your evening time !
