 Instant Tea Premix Recipe

Today I am sharing a very unique but extremely useful recipe here. No, it’s not of tea but of instant tea premix.If I tell you honestly, I do not make this tea premix very often. Why? This is because I end up having more cups of tea every day as I like it so much. Yes, it has an excellent taste and is way too simple.

My Tea My Way!

Isnt this true? Tea is one drink that everyone likes as per his/her way. There is no right or wrong way but just that whatever way you like it, is the best. Some like with lots of ginger others prefer with cardamom and there are some who just can’t withstand any flavour in their tea and they want simple tea with only tea leaves and milk.

At home it is fine, but when you are travelling then getting tea of your taste is a task.  Despite giving your specifications there is no guarantee that you will get what you actually wanted. In such situations, readymade tea mixes are a boon. You just add these to hot water and are ready to sip tea of your choice.

Though nowadays a variety of tea mixes are easily available in the market but today we will make this in our own kitchen and that too with a blend of our liking.

Actually, my son, Shivang, loves cardamom tea but he prefers only the one which is made using instant tea mix. This is also because he can make this himself quickly at odd hours also (like in the midnight while studying). It is because of this that I was wanting to try out this premix but had no idea.

Thanksgiving

As they say that if you really want something then the whole universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. And the same thing happened to me. It was in those days only that I came across a post on FB on Instant tea mix by Radhika Maheshwari. This was what I wanted. My heartfelt thanks to her for this awesome recipe. As I said, we all love tea differently so I used her method but in my own way. The method is hers only but the ratios I adjusted according to our taste. You too can further adjust it as per your taste buds.

Things Required For Making Instant Masala Tea Premix

You only require a grinder, some spices, milk powder and of course tea!

For making this instant tea mix you don’t require any fancy ingredients nor have to go through any lengthy process. It is made easily with ingredients already in your kitchen and takes just 5 minutes. 5 minutes for as many cups of tea as you want. I mean 10 cups or 50 cups, the time required is more or less the same.

Benefits Of Instant Tea Premix

  • Saves time
  • Quick to Make
  • Exactly of our taste and choice
  • No waste is generated, neither of tea leaves nor of tea bags
  • Homemade Tea while travelling too.
  • I have used a variety of spices in my Instant Tea Premix. All these spices are of course aromatic and render an excellent flavour to tea. But other than this, they are having multiple health benefits as well.

Caution: This tea mix is definitely for all those who love tea made with tea bags. But those who like to drink tea brewed on sim gas may not relish this.

How To Make Instant Tea Mix

Now, you can make this Instant Tea Premix either with spices or just with cardamom or plain.

For making this instant tea mix, you actually grind tea leaves along with spices of your choice, maybe, cardamom or cloves or ginger powder or all. Once grounded, you pass it through a sieve so that bigger bits, if any, are removed. Then in this tea powder, you add milk powder and sugar. That’s it. You can easily store this for months. Now, whenever you want to have tea, just put 1 teaspoon of this tea mix in a cup, add boiling hot water and its ready. Isn’t it quick and simple as well?

Though you must have got an idea as to how to make it, still, a brief recipe…
