Chai

Chai is a spiced tea blend from India.

The correct name for chai is… chai. Saying chai tea latte is saying “tea tea latte”. So stop calling it chai tea, it sounds silly 😉

  • 0.5″/1cm piece of cinnamon bark
  • 9 whole cloves
  • 6 black peppercorns
  • 5 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
  • half whole star anise
  • 0.25 tsp ginger powder
  • pinch of nutmeg or mace
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp Assam tea leaves
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup milk
  • Add the whole spices to a saucepan. Add the water. Bring water to a boil then take pot off heat. Allow whole spices to steep for 30 to 45 minutes. Once whole spices have steeped, add the milk and bring water, spice, and milk mix to a boil. Take pot off heat. Add ground spices, sugar, and tea. Allow to steep for 5 minutes.

    This recipe doubles very easily, which is just as well because you’ll probably drink the whole batch in no time!
