Express Somali Tea (Shaah)

I call this express because its a quick recipe to make just one cup of tea. I started doing this because my husband would only drink one cup and a pot of tea was just too much. There are more spices in this even though its smaller because they are not in the water very long so the flavor doesn't have time to come out.

1 1/2 cups water

1 Tea bag

4 Cardamom seeds -crushed

1/2 teaspoon Cloves -crushed

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon nido or milk

Add water, tea bag, cardamom seeds, cloves and sugar to a microwave safe cup. Put in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stir well, the tea bag may break open and the loose tea come out that's ok because it will be strained. Add the nido to a mug then strain tea in the mug. Stir and serve.
