How to Brew Masala Chai

To call the masala chai a treat would be an understatement. Within a cup of masala chai you have a whole ecosystem of flavors, aromas, tastes and experiences.

This Indian tea does not have a single formalized or set recipe or preparation method. It is said each family has their own recipe and way of tea preparation.
