Combine the gelatine and 3 tbsp of water in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes, or until the water has absorbed.


In a small pot, combine the rest of the water, tea bag, cardamom, cinnamon and sugar. Place over a medium heat and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.


Remove from the heat and strain the liquid to remove the spices.


Whisk in the gelatine and strain into a shallow dish. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.


To make the sweetener, combine the evaporated milk with the condensed milk in a small bowl and whisk. Place in the fridge to chill.


Using a sharp knife, cut the tea jelly into cubes inside the dish.


Scoop the cubes into 4 glasses and pour over the sweet milk.


Serve cold.
