How to Make Chai Tea:
Please note there are many ways to make Chai Tea and this is one which I prefer. Listed below are other tips and variations you can try.
Step 1: Using a coffee/spice grinder or mortar and pestle, grind up spices.
Step 2: Add tea to spice mixture. Fill tea pot or coffee plunger with boiling water and add spice mixture. Use 3/4 cup boiling water and 4 teaspoons of tea/spice mixture per serve. Let stand 3-4 minutes. Heat milk using stove top, microwave or even better use a coffee machine so you can produce frothy milk. This gives a cafe style chai tea latte. Add heated milk and sweeten to taste.
