Shaah - Somalian Spiced Tea

Somalian spiced tea sounds quite similar like our spiced tea..I love this spiced tea coz this tea goes for splendid spices calling for cloves, cardamom seeds, cinnamon sticks, ginger...A prefect tea for cold wintery evening or a lazy morning breakfast..We enjoyed each and every sip of this tea and we loved it..I got this spiced tea again from Tammy's space, thanks again to Tammy for this fantastic spiced tea, we truly enjoyed this fantastic tea for our sunday breakfast..


2nos Tea bags
4nos Cloves
5nos Cardamom seeds
1no Cinnamon stick
1tbsp Ginger (grated)
2cups Water
1cup Milk
Sugar as per need

Heat the water along with tea bags, meanwhile crush the cardamom seeds, cloves and cinnamon stick using a pestle and mortor..Add the crushed spices,ginger and sugar to the boiling tea, reduce the heat and simmer for few minutes..finally add the milk and strain the spiced tea with a muslin cloth or a strainer..

Enjoy hot tea with some biscuits for snacks..

Dear,
I had a bad experience with this tea the last and only time i made it.. that was a year ago..I overdid the cinnamon and neither my father nor my brother-in-law liked it..i will follow this recipe and see how it fares. :)
