  • Ingredients
  • 1 heaping tsp per 8 oz of water, 212°F, 3-5 min.  For an authentic Masala Chai experience, boil tea in hot water and add sweetened condensed milk. 

    • Cardamom is used in every true masala chai, but blends can contain up to 9 or 10 spices. This special Ceremonial Chai focuses on three different spices:  green cardamom pods, cardamom seeds, and vanilla bean extract. 
    • The Assam black tea used as the base of most chai is a strong, malty tea that won't find its flavor overwhelmed by the addition of milk and spices
    • For an incredible dessert, steep this tea extra strong and blend the resulting tea with your favorite vanilla ice cream—a delicious, spicy, and creamy Masala Chai ice cream
    • In the 1830s, the British became concerned about the Chinese monopoly on tea and began to grow tea in India and Ceylon
    • In 1870, over 90% of the tea consumed in Britain was from China, but by 1900 this had dropped to 10%, replaced by tea grown in India and Ceylon
    • Consumption of black tea within India remained low until a promotional campaign by the British-owned Indian Tea Association in the early 20th century encouraged factories, mines, and textile mills to provide tea breaks for their workers in the English style, with milk and sugar
    • The Indian Tea Association disapproved of independent tea vendors' tendency to add spices, milk, and sugar because it reduced the usage and purchase of tea
    • Masala Chai outlasted the British and established itself as a popular beverage in India and the rest of the world
    • Masala means "spice mixture" and chai simply means "tea"
    • Greek yogurt
