tea and spices
the basic recipe is something like
- Bring water to boil. add tea leaves (any black tea) and reduce heat.
- Add the spices: some cloves, cardamom (squeeze and crack the pods add them whole), a cinnamon stick (I like to break them into two).
- Simmer (until you get a nice rolling boil happening).
- Add some milk and cook a little more.
-Strain to serve.
-Sweeten to your own taste.
