Authentic Indian Masala Chai - Authentic Indian Spiced Tea

Authentic Masala Chai is prepared with aromatic spices, black tea, lots of milk and sugar. Sugar enhances the flavour of the spices. Now a days this traditional Masala Chai is rare in my house as we prefer our tea with less milk and without sugar but since our daughter tried traditional Masala Chai, on her trip to India, she has been longing for the same back home!

So, let me grab the opportunity to show you how to brew a perfect Authentic Masala Chai you would find in every corner of India. I used ICHAI Spicy Tea to make this recipe, tea turned out so delicious with same authentic taste.

I had wanted to post this recipe a long time ago, but wanted to serve it like it's served in India. I was waiting to get my hands on 'Chaiwala Cups and Stand'. Recently my daughter's best friend Jo and her family went to India and brought them back for me :) Thank you Jo !
