French Press Cardamom Fennel Chai
A robust cup of French Press Cardamom Fennel Chai with all the masala chai flavor, but with less cleanup.
- 3 cardamom pods with black seeds, crushed
- 1 tsp fennel seeds, crushed
- 3 tsp Indian tea leaves, I love Wagh Bakri
- 20 ounces hot water
- a touch of whole milk, optional
Boil the water.
While the water boils, remove the seeds from the cardamom pods. Use a mortar and pestle to crush the seeds. Do the same for the fennel seeds.
Add all the seeds to the French Press.
Along with Indian tea leaves.
Once the water boils, wait for a couple minutes until it is not boiling, but rather hot. Once hot, add the hot water to the French Press.
Stir. Cover the French Press with its lid followed by a tea cozy. Wait 3-4 minutes and let the flavors combine.
Once done. Gently press the French Press and pour into a tea cup. Enjoy with touch of milk.
