What's in my Kitchen Pantry?

The Where is Assam?

The information above will tell you about Assam where the tea I brought back from India originates from.

As to what to do with the Assam tea when you bring it back home, here's what I learned how to make the awesome Chai tea:
You can get any brand that says Assam tea. I have both up above that I brought back from India.

You cut some pieces of ginger - smash or slice them and add 2-3 seeds of cardamom.  The fresher looking they are the better.  It has more flavor.  I added a tap of the tea and poured about 1 -1/2 cups of water.  Boil about a few minutes.

Drain in a container.  You can now add sugar or not; and drink as is or add milk. You can also add ice to drink it cold.
Serve it without... Or
With cream. Now you have homemade Chai Tea.

The above recipe is what I learned when I visited India last year.  It does not contain whipped cream.  But you can do that and add your sugar as you please.  Also, it did not have cinnamon - just the cardamom.

Try this and you'll like it!
