How to make Masala Chai


Ingredients for 5 glasses of Masala Chai:

  • 1\2 Teaspoon of Masala Tea (a special blend of ground spices for tea sold in Indian grocery stores)
  • 2 Teaspoons of whole-leaf Assam Tea (the leaves should be strongly aromatic with dominant and floral notes )
  • 1pint/1/2 Liter of whole milk

Put the Masala and the Assam Teas in the milk and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer for 1 or 2 minutes, then remove from the heat and allow standing for 3 to 4 minutes. Strain the milk and pour into glasses. You can add sugar and some cardamom seeds placed in each glass for decoration!

Happy Tea Break, Mariana!
