Masala Chai

This creamy, spicy and seriously sweet tea is an Indian staple that we just fell in love with. Delicious in warm or cold weather ;)

Masala Chai (Spiced Tea)
Serves 4


2 cups 2% fat milk
2 tea bags (Darjeeling works well)
1 cinnamon stick, broken
2cm fresh ginger, grated
5 cardamom pods, bruised
Large pinch ground black pepper
4 whole cloves
Brown sugar to taste


Bring the milk to the boil.
Remove from heat and add the tea bags and spices.
Allow to steep for 20 – 30 minutes.
Strain the spices and tea bags and return mixture to the pot.
Add sugar to taste (it should be served quite sweet) and bring up the heat again to dissolve the sugar.
Serve hot.
