Ginger Tea / Adrak Chai

Nothing like a hot tea to drive away the tiredness and bring about a fresh feeling. If the tea is flavorful then it is a bonus. It is rightly said that a lot can happen over a cup of coffee. It stands so true for tea too . Because this very blog started, as a result of the teatime conversation between me and my husband.

This ginger tea is perfect for a cold evening esp. if you are down with sore throat, then it does the job of healing it as well. 


  1. 1 cup of milk
  2. 1 cup of water
  3. 1 tsp of tea leaves
  4. 1 inch ginger, peeled and crushed
  5. Sugar to taste
  • In a pan , take the milk, water, ginger and sugar. Boil it. 
  • Once the milk starts to boil, add the tea leaves and reduce the flame to low. Let it boil  for about 10 sec. 
  • Remove it from the heat and strain it .
  • Serve it hot with some biscuits.


  1. You could add sugar later if the people you would be serving would need different amount or no sugar at all.
  2. I don't usually drink a very strong tea. If you prefer strong tea, you would have to boil it a little longer.
