Masala Chai

Updated: Sep 10

Masala Chai, a flavored tea, brewing with tea leaves, aromatic Indian spices, milk and sugar. Masala tea is originally an Indian tea with a nice aroma of spices, rich and milky, deeply coloured and steaming hot . Now it is popular around the world and now days Masala tea is an important part of any good restaurant menu card. Markets are flooded with so many tea brands, but my suggestion is, try this fool proof recipe and impress your friends and family. This recipe is very close the masala chai available in the good tea restaurant.

If you want to make masala chai regularly, make chai masala powder and store it in the air tight container and use when needed.
