So today I added mint to my regular ginger tea. Let’s begin with the recipe of Pudine aur Adrak Wali Chai. This recipe yields 2 cups of tea. My tea cups have the holding capacity of 120 ml. So, for the purpose of measurement, 1 cup = 120 ml for the purpose of the recipe.


  • Whole Milk – 2 cups
  • Water – 1/2 cup
  • Black tea – 3 tsp or as needed depending on the strength of the blend (I used Society Tea)
  • Sugar – 3 tsp or to taste
  • Mint leaves -30 to 40 leaves, torn with hand
  • Ginger – 2 tsp, grated
