In our neck of the woods, it’s finally beginning to cool off after our extended summer and come into the perfect weather to curl up with a cup of tea. A time-honored brew to warm you up from the inside during these cooler months is a Chai Masala, or tea with spices. In India, every Chai-wallah has their own special recipe to create this sweet, rich treat. And now you can make your very own Chai Masala from scratch by following these simple steps:
(makes four 8 oz servings)
10 tsp Tali’s Masala Chai
2 cups hot water
2 cups milk
Sugar to taste
Simmer 10 tsp of Tali’s Masala Chai in 2 cups of hot water for 3 minutes. Add milk and sugar (normally 4 tsp) and bring to a simmer. Do not allow to boil. Strain and serve.
You can also substitute other darker, rich black teas in this recipe. Suggestions might be Pumpkin Spice Chai, Cinnamon Fig, or try it with our Classic Black for a Royal Milk Tea.
