Ingredients

  • 2 green cardamom pods, lightly crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 1 1/2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 bags black tea, such as Assam or Darjeeling
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat milk

Directions

  1. Bring spices, ginger, and water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer until liquid becomes aromatic, about 15 minutes. Whisk in sugar, then add tea bags; turn off heat and let steep 3 minutes.

  2. While tea is steeping, warm a serving pot by rinsing several times with very hot water. Strain tea mixture through a fine strainer or a coffee filter into pot. Heat milk over medium heat until just simmering. Whisk until frothy. Pour into serving pot, stirring well to combine.
