Chai is a centuries-old beverage which has played an important role in many cultures especially India.
Chai from India is a spiced milk tea that has become increasingly popular throughout the world. It is generally made up of rich black tea, a combination of various spices, a sweetener and milk.
The spices used vary from region to region and among households in India. The most common are cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and pepper.
Drinking chai is part of life in India and I make it almost daily at home. Well tell a little white lie. I used to but these days out of ease, I tend to make a concentrated chai syrup one a week and use that with hot frothy milk. Its such a comforting drink. You can also make an iced chai by substituting the hot milk for cold milk and ice. Either way is great!!
