Chai Masala Tea

Chai is black tea brewed with spices and milk. A cup of chai gives a wonderful sense of warmth and has a soothing effect. The mere aroma of chai makes you to want one; it is hard to resist. There are endless recipes, and every household has its favorite spice mix. Here is my favorite!


Chai spice mix:
24 green cardamoms
4 black peppers
1 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder

2 Cups of Chai
1-1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons tea leaves
2 teaspoons coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon Chai Spice Mix from above


Mix all the spices and grind to a powder  in a coffee grinders. Store the chai spice mix in airtight container. Boil the water and milk with 1/4 teaspoon spice mix. When the water boils, reduce the heat to low and add the tea leaves and coconut sugar.

Cover the pan and let it simmer two to three minutes. Strain the mixture and serve hot. Adjust the sugar to your taste. Enjoy!
