With the winter setting in, I start relying more on hot drinks—be it soups, teas or coffees—to keep me warm. One of my favourite teas is the Ginger Mint Tea or Pudina Adrak Chai.

I am a coffee lover; give me my Filter Coffee and I rarely need anything else. Ok Ok may be some Curd Rice | Daddojanam and I need little else to survive. I absolutely love flavoured teas and am blessed that India has a range of them.

Today, I am posting this recipe for one of my favourite teas the Ginger Mint Tea with Milk. Called Pudina Adrak Chai in Hindi, this tea is good both for digestion and for the immune system. Since I have both mint and ginger at home all the time, I can make this on a whim. This is typically my 4 PM brew that I enjoy with some oven-warmed, crisp Khari.

To keep warm in winter, do also try my recipes for:


  • Do grate the ginger and tear the mint leaves. This will help you brew a delicious aromatic and spicy tea.
  • You could also make this tea without milk. In that case, just substitute milk with an equal amount of water.
  • Adjust the amount of water and milk to suit your preferences.
  • I boil the water and milk separately, and don’t boil the tea after adding milk. You could simply combine all ingredients and bring them to boil.
