Masala = Mixed Spice & Chai = Tea A traditional Indian beverage made with steamed milk & sweetened to taste.
Making Chai is easy! Pour 1/2 cup of boiling water over 1 tsp of Chai; let steep 5 mins, then add 1/2 cup of hot milk or condensed milk for greater sweetness. Strain leaves & spices before drinking.
Another suggestion is to simmer 1 tsp of Chai with 1/2 cup milk & honey on stovetop. Gradually add 1/2 cup water. Strain leaves & spices before drinking.
Pouring over ice makes delicious Iced Chai!
This versatile tea can also be prepared as a self-drinker. Plain hot Chai is made like any black tea (steep 5 minutes) or green tea (steep up to 3 minutes). May be enjoyed without adding milk.
