What is more comforting on a cold rainy day than a cup of chai. Specially when the simple chai is flavoured with stuffs likes cardamom and ginger or chai masala. They take the cuppa to the next level. My mum want tea daily two times. But i am not like that. I have it when i feel like having one. On those days i make special cup of tea. This mint chai is my recent favorite. I found some fresh mint leaves on my backyard, so i plucked few of them and added to the tea and it was so unbelievably flavourful. From that day onward mint chai has become my latest addiction.
And did you notice the crockery, it was given to me by my friend when she dropped to visit my place. Now i own a entire batch of tea set, I love it so much.
