Punjabi Tea Masala

How about a cup of refreshing tea with a distinct fennel seeds aroma? I think it's just perfect for the "Think Spice: Fennel seeds".

Punjabi Tea Masala
Ingredients
1/2 tbsp fennel seeds/variyali/saunf/badishep
5 cloves
5 green cardamoms
1 brown cardamom
1 cinnamon stick
1/8 tsp nutmeg powder
1/4 tsp dried ginger powder/sunth (optional)

Method
1. Grind all the ingredients in a clean and dry spice grinder.
2. Store in an airtight bottle/container.
3. While making tea, use about 1/2 tsp per cup.
Note-
I feel that the taste of the tea is distinctly different than the usual Masala chai due to addition of fennel seeds.
