Microwave Clove Tea

Microwave Clove Tea
Aromatic and Yummy Tea

Cloves are an important ingredient in many spice blends of India. They are used mostly in garam masalas, biryanis and pickles. There are so many health benefits of cloves. They relieve tooth pain, helps to control vomiting etc. Cloves are very helpful for getting rid of indigestion too. Cloves keep food fresh.


Here is my version of clove tea done easily in microwave.
 
 Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Milk
  • 2 tsp Tea Powder
  • ½ tsp Cardamom Seeds
  • 10 or 12 whole cloves, ground into fine powder
  • 3 tsp Sugar

Preparation:


  1. In a microwave safe glass jug (I used a pitcher) add all the above ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
  2. Place the jug in the microwave and heat for 6 to 7 minutes or until the tea begins to boil. Then stop the microwave.
  3. Take it out from the microwave and filter using a strainer. 
  4. Pour into individual cups and enjoy hot tea with crackers or cookies of your choice. 
  5. It’s as simple as that!

hey uma, im intrigued by the proportion of 12 cloves to 2 cups of milk. Is it whole milk? I guess I will have to try it to see how strong it is. Great entry!

Cham, Dhivya, Roopa, Kalai, Kamala, Divya Vikram, Sri la, Karuna: Thank you all for your sweet comments.

MS: Thanks. I used 2% milk to make it. Yes, it's little bit spicy.

Alpa: You're most welcome to drop by for a nice cup of tea. I always use milk in tea as we don't like black tea or black coffee that much. Thanks.

Rajitha: You're right. The MW version is so easy and less messy. Try it and let me know.

Dhivya: Thank you so much for thinking of me for this award.

Bee: Thanks a lot for trying my version of tea. Hope you liked it.
