Indian Masala Chai

  • Author: Ashley Thomas
  • Yield: 2 cups 1x



  1. Pour the water into a teapot or small pot and add the spices. Bring the water to a low boil.
  2. Add the tea to the pot and cover the pot for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the cover and once the color of the water changes to your liking, add the milk.
  4. Bring everything to a full boil, then turn off the heat (be sure to carefully watch the pot so the tea doesn’t boil over!).
  5. Put your cover back on the pot, strain your chai and serve.
  6. Add sweetener to taste (I prefer using regular sugar when enjoying chai)


  • If you’re using non-dairy milk such as almond milk, I like using 1 cup of water and 1 cup of almond milk.  You can adjust this according to your taste and to how creamy you prefer your chai.
