Spiced sweetened milk tea. Every Indian family has their own recipe to make chai, but the most important base spice is cardamon. The sweet fragrance of cardamon mixed with other spices such as fennel, cloves and cinnamon gives the tea a heady aroma. The tea is simmered slowly to extract its full strength.

Goes really well with curries and hot foods. The tea is addictive! You won't stop at just one cup.

      Hello there Linda,
      This looks wonderful! I love Chai Tea and just bought Tetley's Chai Tea in bags and World Market. With sweetner it is really good and is just the tea and spices with no sugar.

      I'm in the southern CA area and would love to be your friend. You have some great recipes!

      I write a cooking blog called "Cooking Up A Storm All Over The World". You have a personal invitation to join if you would like at:
