Tea was too watered down. Water to milk ratio of 1 : 1 should lead to tastier tea.

You indicate this recipe for 2cups. However your liquid ingredients Milk 3/4 cup and Water 1/2 cup does not make it to 2cups. Both together is 1/14cup.

   Dear Hemant Thanks for bringing this to our notice. The water in this recipe is 1 1/2 cups, which has been updated. The serving size of 2 cups is thus perfect. To answer your other question, with change in serving size our system makes the changes in the quantity of ingredients only. Proportionate change in any quantity in ingredients, like water, mentioned in the procedure has to be done manually.
