Lemon Grass Tea

The first recipe from our book is Lemon grass tea which, even though it is not a typical tea click but has a lovely lemony fragrance and citrusy flavor. It is perfect for mood uplift, anxiety, and cooling the body.


  • 2 cups water
  • 5 teaspoon tea leaves. I use Taj Mahal tea
  • 1 lemongrass stalks and leaves chopped
  • 2 tsp. sugar/honey
  • ¼ cup milk 


The consistent flame distribution of the gas hob covers the bottom of the bowl entirely, giving consistent heat.

Also, with its efficient vertical flame distribution, the fuel consumption otherwise expected in such recipes is much less as compared to when doing on a normal gas hob.

  • Add water to double your requirement. For example, if you are making 1 cup of tea, take 2-2.5 cups of water.
  • Add lemongrass stalks and leaves and bring to a boil on medium flame.

You can store the remaining lemongrass stalks and leaves in Hafele's ARG650NF free-standing refrigerator for longer preservation.

  • Now lower the flame and let the lemongrass steep for about 5 minutes.
  • Now add the tea leaves. Let the tea leaves brew for about 3 minutes.
  • Add milk and sugar—heat for a minute more.
  • Strain and serve.

Your Lemongrass chai is ready.

Masala Chai

Now, if this article is about tea recipes, how can we miss out on the most popular tea in India, Masala Chai! Let's check out its recipe!


  • 2 cups water
  • 4 teaspoons raw sugar or add as per taste
  • 2 teaspoons black tea – granules or tea leaves
  • ¼ cup milk or add as per taste
  • 1-inch cinnamon stick
  • 2 to 3 green cardamoms
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 inch Ginger


The machine comes with a 45 grams exclusive dry grinding glass jar for soft dry grinding to satiate all your cooking requirements. So, even if your grinding masala is less quantity, you can still get a smooth powder. Also, its powerful motor helps with a step less speed control mechanism.

  • Now that your spice mix (Main masala) is ready, heat the water in a deep pan.
  • Let the water boil, and then add the crushed spices.
  • Boil the spices along with the water for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add sugar as per taste. I usually add 4 teaspoons of raw sugar. You can add more or less.
  • Now add 2 teaspoons of tea powder. Boil for a minute. This boiling time depends on how strong you want your tea. If you prefer a robust and intense tea, boil for a few more minutes.
  • Add milk. After adding milk, boil for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Using chilled milk, boil it with tea for 2 to 3 minutes. If using hot milk, then add the milk and switch off the heat.
  • Pour the tea through a tea strainer directly into the cup.

Serve masala chai hot with some Indian snacks or cookies, or biscuits.

Green Tea

Green tea is a type of tea that is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. It is one of the most popular types of tea in the world, and it is known for its delicate flavor and numerous health benefits.


  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons green tea leaves or 2 green tea bags
  • Raw sugar as required
  • Slice of lemon (optional)
  • Mint leaves (optional)


Boiling water in this kettle allows you to boil it at optimum temperature. The Dome Kettle

Its Stainless-Steel body, inner water level markings, non-drip spout, and sleek handle make these kettles extremely easy to use and durable.

  • Place one to two teaspoons of green tea leaves in a cup of tea, and pour the hot water over the leaves.
  • Allow the tea to steep for two to three minutes, then remove the leaves and serve the tea hot.

You can add flavor to your green tea, like a slice of lemon or a sprig of mint, to the cup before serving.

Note: Tea is a staple of Indian households, and you will find "morning tea" in every region. Tea leaves or powder dye anything easily. Therefore, the strainer or the pot that is used for everyday tea making sediments black stains on the strainer holes, further blackening them. Using Hafele's SERENE FI 02 fully integrated dishwasherr daily cleans these blackened utensils thoroughly.


Tea is one of the essential requirements during winters, and a hot steaming cup of tea on a cold, breezy night feels like bliss!
