To prepare a cup of masala chai, simply steep a teaspoon of the loose leaf tea in hot water for 3-5 minutes. You can also enjoy it iced by steeping the tea in hot water, then straining and adding ice. Experiment with the steeping time and amount of tea leaves to find your perfect cup.
To make masala chai with milk, steep a teaspoon of loose leaf tea in hot water for 3-5 minutes. Then add a cup of milk to the steeping tea and allow the tea to heat back to the point of boiling to bring out a caramel flavor from the milk. You can also add sweetener to taste, such as sugar, honey, or agave syrup. For a creamier and richer chai, try using whole milk or a plant-based milk alternative.
