How to Make a Perfect Cup of Milk Tea
Most of the people outside India prefer to have a cup of tea without milk. But in India, we usually prefer our chai with milk in it. Here's how I prepare my cup of tea. Please note that this is not a page on how to make Masala Chai which requires few more ingredients. This is just a simple How-To for beginners who have just ventured into making their own food and drinks. If you're looking for a simple recipe -- this is as simple as it gets! Enjoy!
For Making 1 Cup of Milk Tea, You Will Need...
1 glass of water (tap water will also do)
1 tsp of tea powder
1 tsp of milk powder
Sugar as needed
How To Make Chai
1. Put water to boil.
2. When water almost starts boiling, put a teaspoon of tea powder. You can add more teaspoons if you want your tea strong!
3. After water reaches boiling point, put down the flame.
4. Keep for 2-3 minutes.
5. In a glass add 1 teaspoon of milk powder plus sugar as needed. I usually like my tea very sweet, so I add about 2 teaspoons of sugar.
6. Pour the mixture of coffee plus hot water into this glass through a strainer.
.... And your hot milk tea is ready!
