or any day for that matter.
2 bags Darjeeling tea (or Assam, or any black tea)
1-2 cups whole milk
2+ cups filtered water
1/2-1 tbs sugar
pinch of ground spices:
- star anise
- you get the idea,
- I like mostly ginger and cardamom,
- different strokes for different folks
I normally put the tea, sugar, and spices in a mug, and then pour the milk over them. Then, I put that into the microwave and heat it up for no more than 30secs at a time. Otherwise, I’ll be cleaning milk off the tray in the microwave. Before I was married, I didn’t have a microwave, so I just heated it up on the stove and mixed it after. It’s arguably better this way, whatever. It’s also a lil more cleanup.
While I’m warming up the milk, I start boiling the water. The milk is usually done before the water, but I like to let the tea seep into the milk before I combine everything. I dunno, it makes me happy in my heart.
Then I pour it into my original mug. Something about it just makes my day better; placebo effect, probably.
