Servings 2


  • Measuring Utensils
  • Measuring Cup
  • Medium Saucepan
  • Tea Strainer
  • Tea Cups


  • 1 Cup Milk
  • ½ Cup Half & Half Cream
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 1 Teabag Lipton Tea
  • 2 Pieces Whole Cardamom
  • 2 Tablespoon Honey


  • Place the medium saucepan on a burner. Set the heat to medium-high.
  • In the medium saucepan, add the milk, half & half, honey, tea bag, and cardamom.
  • Allow the saucepan ingredients to come to a boil on medium-high heat.
  • Allow the ingredients to boil for 2-5 minutes before reducing the heat to low
  • Remove the teabag from the mixture. Throw away.
  • Strain the tea into teacups to serve hot. Enjoy!


  • Either tea leaves or tea bags can be used to make Doodh Patti Milky Tea. It is up to preference and convenience. The tea strainer will be necessary to strain the tea leaves from the mixture during step 6 if using tea leaves instead of a teabag. 
  • Often used in traditional Pakistani methods of making Doodh Patti tea, we recommend using a ladle to continuously scoop up the tea, then pour it back. Repeat this during the cooking process as it aids in developing the tea’s flavor by enhancing it with each scoop and pouring. This process also manages to froth up the tea for the perfect drink.
  • For more tea flavor, use 2 tea bags instead of one teabag.
  • Use whole milk for a richer and creamier Doodh Patti tea! If you prefer thinner Doodh Patti tea that is less milky, reduce the amount of milk and increase the water content.
