(Sunday Tea) :
I'm in love with this tea. I wish I could have a cup of it with me at all hours of the day. The aroma is completely fantastic (and somehow even better than it tastes) and I love the flavour. The vanilla is fairly mild in flavour, but a splash of cream (yes, I said cream not milk!) really opens it up and feeds that vanilla flavour well.
Bring 1 litre of whole milk (almond milk, soy milk) to a steam on the stove. Crush ½ teaspoon of cardamom seeds (optional) with a mortar and pestle. Add to milk. After you see steam rising from the milk add 10 teaspoons of Masala Chai. Give one stir (don’t stir any more because stirring will release the bitter tannins from the leaves). Remove from heat source, cover and let it steep for at least 5 minutes. Strain, sweeten as desired and enjoy!!
