WHAT IS CHAI?

Chai Prep.jpg

There are four major components of Chai:

  • ​​Black tea

  • Milk

  • Sweetener – sugar or honey are typical chai sweeteners

  • Spices or “Masala”

 
The method of making Chai varies across regions of India, but a common practice for making chai is to combine water and milk in a pot over heat, with added sugar.  Ginger is then grated into the mix, and then the “tea masala," which is the array of spices added to the mixture.  This mixture is brought to a boil and 1 teaspoon of black tea is added.  This chai is then taken off the heat, covered, and allowed to sit for 10 minutes so the black tea can infuse with the chai.  The chai is
then strained and served.
