This spicy, creamy Chai is dead easy and only takes a few minutes to make. The flavours are beautifully simple but the result is a rich and deep flavour that seems so much more complex. Kind of like an intricate tapestry woven out of only 4 colours... that only takes 5 minutes to weave... Yes, almost exactly like that.
It's delicious in the mornings but I also enjoy a cup or two after dinner as a sweet and relaxing end to a day.
1. Take a small saucepan and boil the water. Add in the tea leaves and leave to for a few minutes.
2. Add in the sugar and spices and boil for a few more minutes until reduced by about half. Pour in the milk and warm through to drinking temperature.
3. Strain into a pot and serve.
It's really that simple.
