Tea with added flavours and refreshment is mint tea. Chai is one of the most popular Indian recipes. Generally, tea is a combination of milk, water, tea powder and sugar. It is flavoured in many ways. One of which is by using mint leaves. Mint complements tea very well and gives it a better sip. There are several health benefits of mint and therefore -mint recipes are quite popular. Mint tea is so perfect for a summer’s morning or noon tea.
Mint aids in digestion and not to miss it has a very refreshing flavour. I like to use it in many pudina recipes. Even tulsi tea is very popular in India. Herbal teas are liked by many people. I, however, prefer milk tea. As is filter coffee to South India, so is chai in North India.
For mint tea following ingredients are required:
Mint: A handful of fresh mint leaves, which have been cleaned and washed thoroughly are used. Mint has a lot of dirt on it and therefore wash it properly. Tearing the mint leaves, instead of chopping or adding whole, adds more flavour.
Milk, water, sugar and tea powder: Other than mint, the ingredients required to make tea are the same and very much customisable. You can use tea bags instead of tea powder.
I am someone who can live on an island with some tea. And therefore, there are plenty of chai recipes on the blog. If I had to pick my favourite it would be masala chai. The masala tea recipe has a perfect balance of flavours. Another summer special tea recipe is gulkand chai. These and many more can be checked here in our collection for chai recipes.
