  • 5 cardamon pods
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick (approximately 10g)
  • 1 star  anise
  • 1½ cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2 strips of orange  peel
  • 4 Darjeeling tea bags
  • 500ml water
  • 500ml semi skimmed milk
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar


  1. Toast the spices in a dry frying pan until they are fragrant.
  2. Place the spices into the Cuisinart Spice Grinder. Pulse 2 to 3 times, leaving the spices quite coarse. Reserve.
  3. In a teapot or cafetiere, add the spices, ginger, orange peel and teabags with 500ml of freshly boiled water. Leave to infuse for 10 minutes.
  4. Heat the milk with the sugar, stirring until the sugar has fully dissolved. Once the milk is lightly steaming, froth the milk with a whisk to create some foam. The blending attachment of the Cuisinart 3 in 1 Hand Blender is perfect for milk frothing.
  5. Strain the tea between 4 mugs. Pour over the heated milk, keeping the milk froth back. Then top with a little of the milk froth in each mug.
