How to Make a Traditional Cup of Masala Chai/Chai Tea Latte at Home?

Welcome to our chai recipe blog, where we'll guide you through the art of making the perfect cup of chai right in the comfort of your own home. Chai, with its aromatic spices and comforting warmth, is more than just a beverage - it's a sensory experience that soothes the soul and brings people together. Follow these simple steps to elevate your tea-drinking experience to new heights.

Ingredients:

For 1 tea cup (6-8 oz)
- 2/3 cup water
- 1 tsp of Chai Spice blend (use 2 tsp if using Taprri chai)
- 1/3 cup milk
- Sweetener of your choice (optional)

Instructions:
1. Bring 2/3 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat.



2. Once the water is boiling, add 1 tsp of our Chai Spice chai blend (or 2 tsp if you're using Taprri chai). Allow the spices to infuse into the water for 3-4 minutes, releasing their aromatic flavors.

Tip: for an extra spicy kick, add a pinch of black pepper.

3. After 3-4 minutes, add 1/3 cup of milk to the pot. Stir gently to combine the milk with the chai spice blend.

 

4. Now comes the crucial step in achieving the perfect chai texture - the double boil. Allow the chai mixture to come to a boil again, and when the milk rises, lift the pan off the stove. Let it settle for a few seconds, then put it back on the stove. Repeat this process 1-2 more times, allowing the flavors to meld together and the chai to develop a rich, creamy texture.

 

5. Once you've completed the double boil process, it's time to strain the chai into a cup using a fine mesh strainer or tea strainer to remove any loose tea leaves and spices.


6. If desired, add sweetener of your choice to taste. Traditional options include sugar, or jaggery, but feel free to experiment with alternatives like honey, stevia or maple syrup for a healthier option.

7. Savor the rich aroma and comforting warmth of your homemade cup of chai. Enjoy it as is or pair it with your favorite snack for the ultimate tea-time treat.

There you have it - a simple yet satisfying recipe for making the perfect cup of chai at home. Whether you're starting your day with a cozy cup of chai or winding down in the evening with a soothing sip, chai is sure to become your new favorite go-to beverage. Cheers to the joy of chai!
