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 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.
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!
