What Do I Provide?
Water, milk and sugar
VariationsWhat we have provided you with is our family recipe. Try some of the following ideas below and make it your own!
- Spices: If you like the flavors of cinnamon or cloves in your tea, add some! Just add any additional spices to the water at the same time you add the “Masala” packet. Other spices variations that might be fun to try are: star anise, black peppercorns, allspice, ground ginger, or even some freshly grated ginger.
- Sweeteners: Sugar or sweeteners definitely enhance the flavors of the spices, so we recommend adding something to sweeten it. If you are trying to avoid sugar though, try adding some honey to bring out the flavors instead.
- Milks: Experiment with different milks. With all of the different varieties of “milk” available, use what you prefer. Different milks will also create different flavors that might be nice, such as Vanilla Rice Milk, or you could even use condensed milk, which would work as a dual purpose so you don’t have to add any sweetener.
