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!!
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.
