Fun fact: The word ‘Chai’ means ‘tea’, so asking for a Chai tea would be pretty much saying, ‘I’ll have a ‘tea tea’ please! If you want to order this tea/chai in a restaurant or in the country itself, you would ask for Masala Chai. 

Ingredients:

  • 480 ml | 16 oz | 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp loose assam tea
  • 2 whole green cardamom pods, smashed
  • 1 whole cinnamon stick, broken
  • 5 whole cloves, smashed
  • 240 ml | 8 oz | 1 cup almond milk
  • To taste, sugar or other sweetener

Method:

STEP 1: Bring water to boil, add loose tea, then reduce the heat to a low simmer (so the milk does not scald).

STEP 2: Add the cardamon, cinnamon, and cloves. Add up to 3 cups of milk (The chai should look milky taupe in colour).

STEP 3: Sweeten the chai with sugar to taste, and stir until dissolved. Pour the chai through a strainer and serve.
