Powders, syrups and teabags can never compare to freshly brewed masala chai
(a.k.a. “chai tea
”). Making it from scratch takes more time, but is infinitely more rewarding. This recipe is a bare bones, basic version of masala chai. Once you’ve made it this way, feel free to experiment with blending the many other chai spices
out there into your brew.
To begin making masala chai
, combine milk, water and spices in a medium saucepan.
