I get asked all the time how to make masala chai at home, so I thought I would share a few tips to get it just right.

Ingredients for 2 cups
2 cups of water
4 cloves
4 cardamom pods, crushed
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, crushed
2 tsp of loose chai
2 tsp sugar

Tips & Tricks
– Some people make chai by mixing water and milk however, to make it perfect, you need to boil the water first.
– You can also add black pepper, and cinnamon sticks but I prefer to stick with cloves, cardamom pods, and ginger.
– Don’t be afraid to use tea bags.
– This chai is great to take on a walk, as it stays hot for a long time.
– You can use honey instead of sugar.

– Add 2 cups of water to a pan, along with the cloves, cardamom pods, and ginger. Bring to a boil.

– Once the cardamom pods have softened, add the chai.

– Then, add a splash of milk and the sugar to your liking and bring to a boil.

– Pour the chai through a strainer into your cup.

A delicious warming drink to enjoy on a chilly winter afternoon.
