Chiah Tea Recipe

I hope you're all having a great week and enjoying the weather.  A couple weeks ago, I posted our tea party photo shoot.  Today, I thought I would share Adrienne's tea recipe, which can be served warm or iced (considering the weather I'd probably take it iced today).  It's really similar to chai tea.  This particular recipe is from Nepal:

Chiah Tea

3 T. black leaves 
5 C. boiling water
6 whole cloves
3 cardamom pods, cracked open and ground, or 1/2 t. ground
2-3 cinnamon sticks

Simmer 10 minutes to blend flavours.  Strain.


1 1/4 C. milk, heated

1/3 - 2/3 C. sugar

Serve warm or iced
