Indian Chai

Hi everyone! Today, I will sharing my recipe on how to make Chai, Indian tea. It’s so easy to make, but it has so much flavor from the spices and the aroma is to die for. I usually drink this after dinner or in the mornings on the weekends. Let’s get started!


  • Milk
  • Ground or roughly ground Indian Chai/Tea
  • Cardamom
  • Ginger
  • Sugar or Honey


  1. Fill a pot with water. If you are making 2 cups of chai, fill the pot with 1 cup of water.FullSizeRender-8.jpg
