June 13, 2016 Motions and Emotions 14 Comments

Tea -- These three letters give relieve to all the stress! Isn't it true? Tea a popular drink now over the world though no one knows when and who first brew it. Being a citizen of second-largest tea producing country I have some affinity to it though I am not a hard-core tea lover! I do not prefer to drink tea along with milk, I just love the tea or tea along with some other flavour. Darjeeling tea famous over worldwide for it's aroma. My mother is a great fan of Darjeeling tea but her son-in-law (my better half) prefers Assam tea! So everyone has their own choice but the similarity is we all love tea.



I like to make my morning tea flavourful. So either I prepare lemon tea or ginger tea (my husband's favourite) or unbeatable masala tea! These days I am made over the aroma and taste of Masala tea and I bet spices create magic in any recipes! From today's post I am starting "Tea-Series" where I will share few recipes of flavourful teas. I think you have already guess which one would be my first choice? Yes, it's Masala Tea...Before the preparation of masala tea, we should know how to make masala tea powder? Once you know how to prepare the masala tea powder, you can store the powder in your kitchen cupboard and make a cup of aromatic masala tea with the goodness of spices every morning.
