Chai Tea

Chai Tea

Chai tea is rather a misnomer, as "chai" itself implies tea in Hindi. This spicy milk tea is sometimes called masala chai. Generally, the Indian tea takes a long time to brew from newly ground components simmered over flames. Spices, milk, black tea, and sugar make up the essential active ingredients. To make this tea making use of a conventional dish, collect fresh spices from an Indian or asian market. Take cinnamon sticks, entire cloves, entire black or white pepper corns, a cardamom pod, and grind them together into a powder. With sliced ginger root, include this mixture to a liquid of 2 parts half-and-half to three parts water. Make use of a strong, black tea from Asia such as Darjeeling, Ceylon, or Assam blends, instead of a green tea. Black tea has been oxidized, and has more tannins and a higher pungency. This mixture brews over a low, simmering heat for approximately an hour, unlike steeped tea that takes mere minutes. Strain out the spices and stir in a teaspoon of sugar to highlight the spiciness without overly sweetening. Your cup of chai prepares to relieve your nerves and warmer your soul.
