Indian Cinnamon Tea (Masala Chah)
4 (6-oz.) servings

A tea from Darjeeling with a gentle bouquet. To truly enjoy, omit milk or sugar, which can mask the flavor.

3-3/4 cups water
3" piece of cinnamon stick, broken into small bits
3" piece fresh lemon peel (about 1/2"-wide)
4 heaping tsp. leaf tea or 4 tea bags (orange pekoe)
milk and sugar if desired

1. Bring water to a boil in a pan. Add cinnamon, stir, and turn off heat. Let cinnamon soak in the water for 2 minutes.

2. Bring water with cinnamon to a boil again. Add lemon peel and tea and turn off heat. Let tea brew, covered, for 3 minutes. Strain the tea into a pot and serve. Add milk or sugar if desired.
