Mint tea/ pudina chai

     It has been raining incessantly for two days here forcing us to stay indoors in the weekend. It was a little boring, but it was fun too as we could just laze around, a luxury we cant afford to do during the week days. We enjoyed watching movies and eating some yummy food along with  cuppa chai which was a bliss for this kind of weather. I hope the weather is okay by tomorrow and we are able to enjoy a sunny day and get back to the usual routine. Until then , lets go to the recipe for mint tea as well as ginger tea. Have fun!!
mint/pudina tea/chai
Serves 2 cups of tea-
Water- 1 1/2 cups
Mint/pudina leaves- 1/2 cup
Tea leaves- 1spoon
Sugar- 2 spoons or more if you prefer more sweeter
Milk- 1/2 cup

   Boil the mint leaves in water for around 5 minutes till the water becomes a light green colour. Add the sugar and tea leaves and allow the sugar to dissolve. Now add the milk and switch off the flame after another 4-5 minutes. Strain the tea with the help of a tea strainer/filter into another vessel. Pour into the serving glasses. Garnish with mint leaves if you wish.

Ginger tea- A variation- Grate a big piece of ginger and boil in the water (instead of mint leaves). Then follow the Same procedure (as above) as mint tea.
