1 three-inch piece of ginger root
6 cardamom pods
4 black peppercorns
3 pieces of cinnamon bark
2 cups water
4 tablespoons loose black tea
4 tablespoons organic panela
4 cups whole milk
Grate ginger and remove seeds from cardamom pods. Crush with black peppercorns using a mortar and pestle. Break cinnamon into one-inch pieces.
In a large pot, bring water, cinnamon, cloves, crushed ginger, cardamom and black pepper to a boil. After 5 minutes, add tea leaves. Boil for 5 more minutes, then add milk and panela and reduce heat to low. Simmer for at least 10 minutes, remove from heat and strain into a teapot through sieve. Serve hot 🔥.
