Making Chai at Home
There are two ways to make a great Chai at home, either as a tea (water based) or as a latte (milk based). There are many variations, so I will give you some examples below on the basic methods. Feel free to experiment in the search for your perfect Chai. For sweetener, I recommend a light colored honey or maple syrup.
Making Chai Tea
Add a teaspoon of Chai per cup to a teapot.
Add hot water and allow to steep for around 3 minutes
Pour into a cup, add sweetener, add milk and stir. Enjoy.
Note: If you don't have a teapot you could use a coffee plunger or tea strainer.
Making Chai Latte
Add a cup of milk to a saucepan and gently heat on the stove top.
Add a teaspoon of Masala Chai to milk and stir.
Pour into a cup, add sweetener and serve.
Note This method can also be used for Chai Tea. When heating on the stove top it is best to gently heat without letting chai boil.
