Elaichi Chai is a very famous hot beverage originated from India. Rainy or winter days, it is a go to beverage. It is one of the favourite drinks among Indians.

The quantity of all the ingredients varies from person to person. Every household has their own style of making elaichi wali chai.
As the name suggests, elaichai chai or cardamom tea literally translates to cardamom flavoured tea. The flavor of the tea is very powerful, it is basically made by brewing black tea leaves with cardamom.
We have made cardamom tea by combining water, tea leaves, sugar and crushed cardamom and boiled it together. The colour and flavour of the elaichi chai will largely depend upon the strength of tea powder so, always make use of good quality tea powder or tea leaves. Once it is boiled, we have added milk to it and boiled for 3-4 minutes. You can add milk according to your preference depending on how you like your cardamom tea. Strain and serve hot.
