Masala chai, is a popular beverage in India and other South Asian countries. It is made by brewing a selet blend of blacks with aromatic spices and herbs such as cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Resulting in a full bodied tea infused with the warm and exotic spicy flavors as in India’s traditional chai masala.
In India, chai tea is typically made with loose leaf tea, but tea bags are also commonly used. The tea is brewed with milk and sugar or honey to balance out the bold flavors of the spices. The milk used can be whole milk or a non-dairy alternative such as almond milk or soy milk.
Chai tea is usually prepared in a large pot or pan over a stove, allowing the tea to simmer with the spices and milk for several minutes until it reaches the desired strength and flavor. It is often served hot, especially during the colder months, but can also be enjoyed iced during the summer.
Chai tea has a rich, creamy texture and a warm, comforting flavor that is both spicy and sweet. It is often enjoyed as a morning or afternoon beverage and is sometimes paired with a snack or pastry. In recent years, chai tea has gained popularity around the world and can now be found in many coffee shops and cafes.
