Masala Chai!

I've been making my own masala chai (spiced tea, मसाला चाय) from this Nik Sharma recipe, using his chai masala (tea spice) recipe with a few modifications.

  • Halve the quantities of spices
  • Skip the black cardamom
  • Only 1 tsp of ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp of ground star anise instead of the whole pod

When you're ready for tea:

  • Add 1 tbsp of Assam loose leaf tea and all the spice mix to 2 cups of water, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add 1 cup of whole milk, bring back to the boil, take off the heat and sit for a minute.
  • Strain, add 1 tsp of agave syrup or maple syrup.
