Ginger Mint Chai Recipe: We Indians take our tea or chai very seriously. Now there is no single way of preparing this delicious beverage. Some like it super spiced masala tea, while others prefer the light version without any added condiments. Be what may the case, tea is quite universal in our country.

I know it is only spring-summer but here in Pune last week, we received a  few rain showers, thank  God! Recently a lovely Gujarati friend of mine offered me some mint infused ginger tea. That was my first time with a minty green leaf tea. We all have had ginger tea a dozen times no doubt,.But this mint and ginger combination was new to me. Initially, I was worried that the mint would be too overpowering but once you sip it, you sniff the mint and you get the punch of ginger in your throat, the feeling is amazing especially on a cloudy day.

Here is my step by step guide to making this tea:

Step one:

Take equal part of milk and water for one cup of tea,  in your tea-brewing pan. My friend used more milk or full cream milk for richer tea, I was quite impressed.

Step three:
Add your favorite tea leaves or powder, I am loving the new Tata tea fusion these days, use a single teaspoon for one person’s cup of tea. Let it get a nice orange color to the tea.
