I love any variation of tea. I love Ginger Tea with Milk , Lemon grass tea or Ginger tea without milk. So sometime ago I saw Dum Ki Chai at Lubna space. I was hooked to it. I wanted to try this for very long time. When I visited India few months back, I got the chance to try in Hyderabad. So I kind of liked it but at the same time felt it was a little rich. This evening I was in a mood to try something rich and I remembered this tea. I had Koya in the fridge. So I decided to try it out. I followed this recipe from Lubna's space
