How to make authentic Masala Chai Tea, like they do in India, using using whole spices. Vegan and Sugar Free adaptable.
Lightly crush cardamon, cloves, star anise and peppercorns, and place in a small pot with 1 cup of water. Add ginger, cinnamon and black tea. I like to muddle the ginger a bit.
Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let seep 10 minutes…. or for several hours. The longer, the more flavor.
Add milk. Bring to a simmer once more, turn off heat.
Sweeten, taste, strain into a glass.
Feel the love. xoxo
I typically use a ratio of ½ water and ½ milk. Feel free to make this richer and thicker by using more milk and less water, or even all milk, simmering spices directly in the milk. You can also make the tea as strong as you like.
This can also be made with ground spices, which I will update here shortly.
You can make a big batch of the masala spiced tea ( without the milk) and refrigerate, and add milk when ready to heat up.
You can add more whole spices and more black tea for an even stronger more concentrated version.
