Brew it the traditional Pakistani way
Add milk to a saucepan plus a dash of water to prevent the milk from burning. Add ½ – 1 tsp of tea per cup. Simmer uncovered on the lowest heat possible for 5 min or until the tea starts to boil and rise. Stir occasionally to prevent the tea from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Next, give a quick stir as soon as it rises to stop the tea from overflowing and continue simmering for another 1 – 2 min. Strain into a teapot or cup. Sweeten to taste. If sweetening with sugar, add it while the tea is simmering on the stovetop for a greater depth of flavour. Best served in ceramic cups. If sharing, impress guests by serving with your finest china on a decorative tea tray. Enjoy on its own or with traditional cookies such as naan khatai or pancakes (paratha).
