ChiroJava

A rare (for me) hour:

  • a cup of Chai Tea
  • a book at hand
  • glancing up now and then to see – the fountain at Central Park; sheriffs’ cars pulling up to the courthouse – ready to conduct their daily business; a friend on her Daily Walk a few times around the park; a kitty cat meandering here and there; folks coming in and out of ChiroJava (always with a cheery greeting); a wave to a couple in my Sharers Sunday School Class as they get into their car in front of the cafe
  • A feeling of satisfaction ( I do love Seguin!)

a pleasant way to start a day

__________

Masala Chai

1-1/2 cups water
1 inch stick of cinnamon
8 cardamom ( also spelled cardamon) pods
8 whole cloves
2/3 cup milk
6 tsp. sugar (or to taste)
3 teaspoons any unperfumed loose black tea

Put 1-1/2 cups water in saucepan. Add the cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves and bring to a boil. Cover, turn heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the milk and sugar and bring to a simmer again. Throw in the tea leaves, cover, and turn ff the heat. After 2 minutes, strain the tea into two cups and serve immediately.
