1/1 Photo of Better Chai from a Chai Tea Bag
Kitty Z's Note:
The directions on my chai tea bags say, "steep 3-5 minutes, then add milk." The result is not very good; it's watery and not spicy at all. This recipe is my "rescue" for chai tea bags. It's not exactly chai like you get in India, but it's closer at least!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Place water and tea bag in a small saucepan over high heat.
- 2Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for about ten minutes, until the water is reduced by half. If less than 1/2 cup of water remains after ten minutes, just top up with more water.
- 3Remove tea bag and stir in milk and honey or sugar. Allow the chai to just return to a boil, then pour into a mug and serve.
- 4Note that if you let chai sit for too long, it will form a "skin." This is normal, but if you'd rather not have it, periodically stir your chai while you enjoy it.
