How To Make Ginger Tea | Adrak Chai



Chai has always been my first love. The coffee habit came to me much later in life. Funnily, as a 10 year old, I'd be allowed the occasional tea, but coffee was always considered a grown ups' drink in my Tambrahm home. May be a tiny sip of the last dregs from my grandmom's tumbler, but no more, mind you! I think Chai was the first thing I started making in the kitchen. The afternoon tea would be had at 3/3.30 pm, with a couple of biscuits, and then it was time to get things ready for tiffin.

When I go back home to Mumbai, Amma makes the tea at a set time in the afternoons and funnily my 6 year old joins us for the tea. He makes it a point to start nagging her from 2 pm onwards, "Ammama, is it tea time yet"" He is completely in love with her milk and sugar-rich tea and it find it cute how he hangs around in anticipation of a little cup of tea for himself. 
After my vacation time at Mumbai when I come back home to Bangalore, I miss the tea times and the taste of Amma's tea. It is something I can never replicate in my kitchen. Like I had tweeted once - give tea leaves, water and milk to a large group of people and ask them to make tea. No two teas will taste the same. It depends on the water used, the quantity of tea leaves, how long they are boiled (or not), what milk is used, how much milk, is the milk boiled, is sugar added to the water or stirred in the end - the possible variables are truly mind boggling. 

Come rains and I crave for that stea...
