Chai masala or masala chai (as it is called in India) The meaning is literally a “spiced tea”. This tea is a blended one. It is a mix of aromatic spices; Chai also goes by the name spiced milk. Here in the United States we have several large coffee houses or chains that offer chai. But they will call them chai lattes.

Chai is normally made by simmering the mixture of tea along with spices, sugar, milk, and some hot water over an open flame. There is truly no real recipe for chai masala. The original recipes were passed on for centuries and centuries. Most families will have passed on their own version of this recipe on for years! Black Assum tea is strong and is always the base tea, and it gives us a sensory tour. While the chai is strong, the spices enhance the aroma thus making us drink more. While each member of an Indian family may have different ideas for Masala Chai making. It is as individual as the family who make it.


It is truly a drink that is timeless. It can help you to relax as you “drink in the spices.
