Lucknow: Winter not only calls for warm woollen clothes, leather jackets, vacations, it also calls for a nice steaming hot cup of tea. Tea and winter go hand in hand since the former provides you with the heat and if you like herbal tea you also treat your body with antioxidants that it needs. Nothing can beat a perfect cup of masala tea. Especially during winters, we tend to sip on at least 2 to 3 cup of hot beverages, and if the tea is well made, then the cup count can increase too.

If you are someone who is planning to master the art of making a perfect cup of masala chai, then read below to find out the recipe.

Tulsi Tea

Tulsi is almost found in every Indian household. Add a few leaves of freshly plucked tulsi leaves. Add them in a minute or so after you add the tea leaves and boil so that the flavour blends with the chai.

Elaichi Tea

Elaichi has a soothing and refreshing flavour and should be added while boiling the tea. You can crush the seeds or open the pod and add it. Ginger: This is the most important ingredient of any chai. No tea can be complete without ginger. Crush the ginger and add into the water before it starts boiling so that the juices have enough time to add flavour. It is great for sore throats too.

Black pepper Tea

Black pepper works wonders for sore throat and hence adding it in your tea is a great option.

Masala Tea

Take a pan and add 2 cups of water and bring it to boil. Then in the boiling water add ginger, tulsi leaves, and 2 tsp of tea leaves. Continue boiling on low heat till the colour starts changing and the consistency becomes a little less watery. Strain and serve hot. It makes two cups of tea. Serve it hot with your favourite snacks.
