With these October days passing by, tea consumption becomes a daily routine again. And while the steam from another cup of rose tea romantically flows up, I feel like introducing some kind of change. Like substitute water with milk!
After a brief research, it turns out that tea and milk based drinks are traditional in India. In some Indian provinces in particular a hot drink with tea, milk and different spices called “masala” is highly appreciated and consumed on a daily basis even on the street, as it is considered a great help for digestion processes.
Easier and more popular way of preparing milk tea is by mixing equal parts water and milk.
Our hot milk with roses though was prepared with whole milk only, for a rich, full rosy taste. To prepare it, heat up the milk until the point of boiling, together with a tea spoon of dried roses Rosey’s mark. Leave for 3-4 minutes and filter by pressing the roses, so they give more flavor to the drink. As a natural sweetener you can add honey, or you can sprinkle with cinnamon too. Real treat that goes perfectly with a nice book or other favorite relaxing activity on a chilly day!
