yeuxreveur's picture
Masala chai is one of those drinks that are healthful and tasteful at the same time. The addition of whole spices like cardamoms, cloves and cinnamon make this tea antioxidant rich and give it a very soothing aroma that wakens you.I love to kick start my mornings with this delicious and healthy tea!
Ingredients
  Tea powder 1 Teaspoon
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Milk 1 Teaspoon (Vary As Per Taste)
  Cloves 2
  Cardamom 2
  Cinnamon stick 1
  Black peppercorns 3
  Sugar To Taste
Directions

1. Fill a large pot with water and add the whole spices. Bring it to a boil.
2. Now add the tea powder and let it simmer until the tea leaves start to release their colour and give off that pleasing aroma.
3. Add milk and simmer until you get the desired colour and strength. Don't simmer for too long unless you want your tea to be very strong. I usually simmer it for a minute or two after adding the milk :)
4. Now add sugar, pour your tea into a cup and enjoy.
