Indian Masala Chai Recipe 


2 cups Water 
3/4 inch IB Cinnamon Sticks
3 whole IB Cloves
4 green IB Cardamom / Green Elaichi
black E.H.Akhalwaya & Son Peppercorns
1/2 tsp E.H.Akhalwaya & Son Fennel Seeds
1/2 tsp IB Ginger Powder
3 Tbs Tata Tea Gold
1 cup whole milk
1 Tbs Nestle Gold Cross Full Cream Sweetened Condensed Milk
3-4 tsp Selati White Sugar


- Heat a small/medium saucepan over high heat. Add water, cinnamon stick, cloves, cardamom pods, black peppercorns, fennel seeds, and ginger. Bring to a boil and add the loose tea 

- Reduce the heat to medium/medium-low and simmer gently for 7-10 minutes, depending on how strong you’d like the tea and spices. It will turn a deep burgundy colour and reduce slightly.

- Add milk, evaporated milk and sugar and stir to mix. Raise the heat to high or allow the milk to come to a boil on its own. Once the milk comes to a boil, lower the heat to medium and allow it to simmer for another 5 minutes.

- When ready to serve, raise the heat to high and allow it to come to a rolling boil for a minute or so, depending on how 'cooked' you like the milk. 

- Pour into cups through a strainer and add more sweetener, if needed.
