Authentic Chai Masala Tea Preparation - Indian Street Chai

(1 review) Write a Review



1/4 tsp Authentic Chai Masala Blend 
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. Assam Chai Base black tea
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1 to 2 tsp. Sweet Ginger Sugar or Cinnamon Sugar, or your favorite sweetener


Pour all ingredients into a (preferably spouted) saucepan. Place over medium heat. Allow to heat until small bubbles appear around the perimeter of the milk.

Stir the chai, scraping the bottom to avoid scalding the milk.

When the milk comes to a boil, turn off the heat and stir well and add tea leaves. Bring to a boil once again, turn off the heat and stir well.

Allow to steep for a few minutes. Strain carefully into a cup, and serve.

Often, I will make large batches and store in the refrigerator in a glass jar writing the expiration date of the milk on the container to remind me of the date of which I need to use it by.

    Making Chai Easy and Tasty!

    Published by Mary on Jul 30th 2021

    I like several things about this blend - it has just enough kick, is super easy to use, and is very flexible. I've used it to make a syrup similar to those you'd buy at the grocery store, but I get to control the sweetener. I can make a single cup of masala chai the long way with the boiling twice, or I can make a pot by adding it to my Assam in my Salton kettle and steeper (which I also got from The Spice and Tea Shoppe and LOVE), hitting the boiling level heat and creating a nice cuppa then topping off with almond milk and honey. Also, if you decide you want a little something extra (I add some chopped tumeric root and a bit of fresh ginger root) you can toss them in and customize a bit more. If you want to make a masala chai glaze for a cake - this is PERFECT to add to create the flavor (I admit to being too lazy to make the cinnamon roll recipe on the spice and tea shoppe site, but the glaze works just fine on a box cake!) If you can't tell, this chai masala is an absolute staple at my house.
