I don’t normally blog recipes, but I couldn’t pass this up for future reference. I love Indian chai tea. So I looked up a recipe and tried it out tonight. It was awesome. Thought I’d share. It is definitely worth it. (My insertions)

2 1/4 cups water
1 stick cinnamon
4 cardamom pods
4 cloves
1 cup milk
3 teaspoons sugar (I used brown sugar and would add more actually)
2 teaspoons strong tea


Add spices, water and bring to a boil. Simmer on low for 5 (I did 10 minutes to make it stronger) minutes. Add the milk and sugar to the pan and bring to a boil again (be careful, it boiled over when I did this). Add tea and bring to a boil again. Strain it into a warmed teapot or directly into teacups and serve with Indian savory snacks or cilantro chutney sandwiches.

Serves 2
