I like coffee, and I like unsweetened strong coffee. But, when I am unwell, I hate coffee. I want to drink sweet tea. Yesterday, I made this ‘Chai’ for my son who was unwell. He never ever enjoyed any types of tea before, but it seemed he enjoyed my Chai.


2 to 3 Servings


2 cups Water
3 teaspoons Black Tea Leaves
3 Cardamom Pods *crushed
3 Cloves
1/2 Cinnamon Stick *crushed
1 cup Milk
2 tablespoons Condensed Milk

  1. Place Water, Black Tea Leaves, Cardamom Pods, Cloves and Cinnamon Stick in a saucepan, and bring to the boil. Simmer until aromatic and dark brown.
  2. Add Milk and Condensed Milk, and stir. Strain into mugs and enjoy.
