Cool Hot Mint Tea / Pudina Chai Recipe

Mint Tea / Pudina Chai Recipe
Mint (Pudina in Hindi) serves as a cool blessing in summers, especially with the increasingly soaring temperatures every year. And for those of us who can't do without a cup of tea in the afternoon, mint sure is a boon.

I had mint tea for the first time at Samovar restaurant (Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai) thanks to my dear friend Varsha. And ever since I have become a fan of mint tea!

It will be only unfair not to share the recipe of this cool hot beverage with you guys. So here we go:

Ingredients (mint tea for two): 
  1. Water - 2.5 cups 
  2. Fresh mint / pudina leaves - 1/2 cup (properly washed and loose) 
  3. Tea powder - 2 tsp 
  4. Milk - as per choice
  5. Sugar - 2 tsp or as per taste

Mint Tea Preparation:
  • Boil water with mint leaves for around 3-4 minutes over medium flame. The water gets a greenish colour by this time.
  • Add tea leaves and sugar.
  • After another 2-3 minutes, add milk as per your preference.
  • Give just one boil.
  • And it's ready to sip!

Tip: Remember to use extra water (2.5 cups to prepare 2 cups of tea) as some will be used up during the boiling process with mint leaves.
