Traditional Chai Recipe with Fresh Spices

A good friend revealed to me recently that she had never tasted any other type of Chai other than what was served her at the local coffee shop. Well, when I prepared this fresh chai recipe and shared a cuppa with her, I was not too surprised to find her loving it!

Directions for preparing 4 servings.

Ingredients: 

Chai Masala Spices:

  • 1 TBS Cardamom pods
  • 1 TBS Ceylon Cinnamon chips ( 1" to 2" stick broken into pieces)
  • 1 1/2 TSP Whole Cloves
  • 1 TSP Whole Black Pepper   
Additional Ingredients:
  • 1TBS Finely chopped Fresh Ginger
  • 2 TBS High Quality Black Tea, such as Darjeeling 
  • Sugar to Taste
  • 3/4 to 1 cup warmed Whole Milk
  • 3 cup of water

Bring the water to a boil in a small pan, lower heat to a gentle simmer. Grind the whole spices, just a few spins in a grinder will do - just enough to roughly grind the spices. Add 3 TSP of ground spices to the simmering water, ( reserve the rest for tomorrow's Chai ) cover and simmer on very low heat for 5 minutes.

Add the tea to the pot with spices, stir, remove from heat and pour into a carafe if using a french press, add the ginger. Place the press into the carafe but do not plunge. Let the ingredients steep for a couple of minutes. Add the warm whole milk, add sugar, stir and gently depress the plunger. Serve into pre-warmed mugs or cups. Enjoy your very own home made fresh Chai!
