for a single serving:
- boil 3/4 cup of water in a small pot
- once it starts boiling add one cardomom (pop it open), one crushed or grated knuckle of ginger, one stick of cinnamon (optional... i only do this sometimes), one star of anais, and last, a serving of black tea or just one whole tea bag.
- let this simmer for a couple minutes on a medium heat.
- add 2 tablespoons of milk and bring to a boil for a min (optional)
and that’s how we’ve always made chai at home.
everyone makes their chai differently. it depends on the region. my dads family make very milky chai whereas my moms family makes chai with a literal drop of milk. everyone adds some spice that works for them. it’s a pretty versatile drink.
