Our hand blended Authentic Chai Masala will allow you to experience the truly incredible flavors of real Indian street chai. Chai is a ubiquitous drink in India and is sweet and spicy with a subtle burn at the back of the throat. It is, in a word, incredible! The tea used in preparation must be carefully chosen as it needs to be strong to hold up to all the fresh spices in our Authentic Chai Masala blend. We recommend pairing with our Assam Chai Base black tea.
Ingredients: Tellicherry Black Pepper, Sarawak White Pepper, Ginger, Korintje Cinnamon, Cardamom, Cloves, Grenada Nutmeg
Directions Per 8 oz. cup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1 to 2 tsp. sugar, or your favorite sweetener
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. Assam Chai Base black tea.
1/4 tsp. Salty-Savory-Sweet Authentic Chai Masala or more depending on your spice preference.
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, we will make large batches and store in the refrigerator in a glass jar. We write the expiration date of the milk on the container to remind us of when we need to use by.
