Ginger cardamom tea

Written by: Shanthi Muthuvel

Tea plays an important role in our day to day life. After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. Tea has lot of health benefits like it contains antioxidants, has less caffeine than coffee, reduce risk of heart attack and stroke, protects bones, it is calories free. I love to have tea with rusk or less sweetened biscuits.

Notes:

  • Increase and decrease tea powder according to tea leaves strongness. Mine was little strong so I used 1 1/2 tsp of tea powder.
  • You can add sugar at the last stage but I prefer using it in the beginning itself since it gives nice taste.
