Ginger tea | Inji Chaya | Adrak chai | Adrak wali chai

 


Ginger tea or Inji chaya is a very healthy and medicinally important Indian beverage made with ginger, tea leaves and milk. Ginger tea is also known as inji chaya in Malayalam and adrak chai or adrak wali chai in Hindi. Despite of the pleasing aroma and taste of ginger, it is filled with a lot of medicinal properties of ginger. It helps in lowering blood pressure, preventing blood clot, clears throat, prevent nausea, improve immune system etc.

I usually use half milk and Half water for my tea and coffee. This recipe also, I made in the same way. But you can adjust to your preference. Use more sugar and tea leaves if needed. Boiling tea leaves for a long time, will leave bitterness in tea. Also, do not put tea leaves in the beginning.
