Preparation: Ingredients and Items
For this recipe, you will need our chai essentials:
- One tablespoon fresh ground ginger
- Black Tea & Spices (cardamon, cinnamon, cloves, pepper, star anise)
- One pot
- One cup water
- One cup 2% milk
- Two tablespoons sugar
Step 1: Add Water to the Pot
This recipe uses one cup of water and one cup of 2% milk, but you can scale it up to use 3x of each if you are after 6 cups chai tea. To begin, pour the water into a pot and set the heat to medium.
Step 2: Mix in Sugar, Tea & Spices
Add your tea and spices to the water. Whether it is loose leaf tea and the raw ground spices, or a pre-made bag of tea & spices, drop it into the pot. Two tablespoons sugar are recommended, but flavor to taste.
Step 3: Grate the Ginger
With the tea and spices in the water, the next step for flavor is grating 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger into the pot, and wait for the mixture to begin boiling.
Step 4: Add the milk
Once the water starts boiling, pour in your milk.
Step 5: Wait until Chai Boils
With all the ingredients in the pot, the final step is to wait for the pot to boil one more time. Once the milk foams over and the chai boils, remove it from the heat.
Step 6: Serve the chai through a strainer
For the smoothest flavor, especially when using loose leaf tea, pour the chai through a strainer to serve.
