When lectures are cancelled for a second day running
And it's cold and slushy outside,
I delve into 'The Little Prince'
Whilst sipping a brew of masala chai.
Makes 2 servings
8 cardamom pods
8 whole cloves
1 inch stick of cinnamon
3 slices of fresh ginger
3 tsp brown sugar (or to taste)
2 black tea bags
Put the water, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and ginger into a pan and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down, cover, and simmer very gently for 10 minutes. Add milk and sugar and bring back to a simmer. Turn off the heat, add the tea bags, and cover. Let steep for 2 minutes. Remove tea bags and strain masala chai into two cups and serve immediately.
Slushy on the roads but gloriously snowy in the fields. My first snowman in years!
