Crush the whole spices in a mortar pestle and while doing so keep the water on medium heat.
Once the spices are crushed add them to the saucepan in which the water is heating up.

Place the saucepan on the heat and add milk and sugar and let the water boil.
As soon as the water boils add the tea leaves, cover the pan and steep for another 3 minutes.
