Just made Indian Railway Tea. So delicious!: For one quart: 2 cups water 3-4 whole cloves 1 stick cinnamon 3-4 cardamom pods (cracked open) Bring these to a boil; let stand as long as possible. Then add to: 1/4 cup loose black tea (or 4 tea bags) and let steep. Then add: 2 cups milk to the tea-spice mixture and heat but do not boil. When hot, strain and add: 4 tablespoons of sugar (I used 3 and it was definitely sweet) Stir and keep hot.
