Mint tea recipe , Mint chai

Mint tea | pudina chai | mint chai is a milk based tea with the addition of fresh mint leaves in it. Generally we add ginger or cardamom or tea masala for making chai | tea. When i did Women's day Live on Jeyashri's kitchen facebook, after the session Radhika made this mint chai for me. It was so refreshing and i enjoyed every sip of the tea. Later at home i tried this few times and also served for a friend who visited us directly from the office. The feedback for the mint tea made me to post the recipe of how to make mint tea. Try this simple refreshing tea with easy ingredients.
I am back after 3 weeks of vacation to India, for our son's poonal(thread ceremony). The event went off very well and we are slowly coming back to routine. Stay tuned for new recipes. Thanks for your support always.
