You can add more milk if you like it. I like my tea very strong hence I always add less milk to it.
You can also add a pod of crushed cardamom, cloves and nutmeg powder to your ginger tea to elevate the taste.
A few pinch of this Chai Masala Powder will only add to the taste. So go ahead and add some in your ginger tea too.
Use best quality tea leaves to make ginger tea.This is what I use.
Use a fine mesh strainer to strain the tea otherwise the powder from the tea will come in your cup which is not a good idea. Check this one here.

Ginger itself is a great remedy for common cold and cough but adding a few more ingredients to your everyday ginger tea will make sure you get rid of the cold very fast.
I like to add some crushed peppercorns, cloves, a few leaves of tulsi or holy basil and cinnamon to my ginger tea if I or my family members are down with cold. Try this trick and see the effect yourself.
