Pudina Milk Tea

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 Servings 1x


Unlike traditional mint tea bags, this recipe has caffeine and an authentic flavor. Enjoy it as a hot or iced tea. Cool the milk tea to room temperature for iced tea and pour it over ice.

2 cups water

2 black tea bags

1/2 cup milk

1/2 tsp powdered ginger (optional)

2 tbsp white sugar (or jaggery)

Jaggery is an Indian sweetener made from raw sugar, but you can use your favorite sweetener.

Turn this pudina milk tea into a bubble tea by adding tapioca pearls or your favorite bubble tea topping.

Pudina mint tea often uses spices like fresh ginger, lemongrass, cardamom, tulsi, cinnamon, fennel, or crushed cloves. Add a pinch of some or all of these spices when you add the black tea.
