Chai (Indian Spiced Tea) Notes

This recipe was given to me from a lady at church. Most coffee houses offer Chai that's loaded with sugar. This has a great flavor with little sugar. Play with the spices to suit your needs. This is what I've found to taste the best!

Serves / Yields

7 cups

Preparation Instructions

Combine tea and spices with water. Bring mixture to a boil. Boil 1 minute. Add milk and return to a boil. Strain and enjoy.

Helpful Hints

The Spice House sells muslin bags for holding spices during cooking. It keeps the straining to a minimum. I recommend using them!
