Last year I had the opportunity to travel to Darjeeling’s various tea estates. Since I love Darjeeling tea I bought so much tea that my stock isn’t over yet. Haha! Making this tea is no rocket sciene actually; everything is in the ratio of 1. For example, for 1 cup tea, you need 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon tea leaves, 1 tsp sugar and 1 teaspoon milk. Simple.

Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 1 serving.

 

Ingredients:

  1. Water: 1 cup
  2. Long leaf tea leaves: 1 tsp
  3. Sugar: 1 tsp ( Adjust sugar according to your taste)
  4. Milk: 1 tsp  ( If you like more cream, adjust accordingly)

 

Method:

  • Boil water in a saucepan, when the water starts bubbling time to add the tea leaves.
  • Cover the pan and turn the heat off immediately.
  • Let this sit for 5-7 minutes. The leaves that are floating on top will settle down to the bottom eventually.
  • Come after 5 minutes, if you see the tea leaves have settled to the bottom, it’s time to heat the tea again for a few seconds because the tea must have gone cold in the process.
  • Do not boil, just heat them for 30 -40 secs.
  • Time to strain the tea with a tea strainer in the cup, add the sugar and milk.
  • Mix well, and enjoy your Darjeeling tea.
