'Tis the season and what better way then to add peppermint to our daily staple drink, Chai! Try it out once and enjoy your cuppa joy! (:
- 4 Peppermint candy canes
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 1/4 cup Water
- 2-3 teaspoons Tea leaves
- Sugar to taste Please note, the peppermint powder will also have some sugar in it.
- 1/4 teaspoon Peppermint powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Ginger, grated
- 1/8 teaspoon Tea masala (optional)
Crush the candy canes. A coffee grinder works the best for that. Store it in an airtight container for daily use
Heat water, add grated ginger, let it come to a boil on medium heat. Add tea leaves and let it boil for a couple minutes.
Add milk, and let it boil on medium heat for a few minutes, until 3/4 way done. This generally takes about 5-7 minutes. At this point, add 1/4 teaspoon of crushed candy cane, sugar (if adding), and tea masala. Stir.
Let it boil for a few more minutes, turn off the heat. Strain the tea in a cup.
Enjoy your cuppa joy!
