One of my favorite things to drink when we honeymooned in India was Masala Chai tea.  We would have it after almost every meal, like a dessert, because it's so sweet and delicious.  Since then, I've tried many different chai teas at coffee shops and while some have been good, I have yet to try one that tastes just like the ones we had in India.  How was I going to get that same chai tea again without jet setting half way across the world?  Well, I decided to make it at home.  And after a lot of tweaking and trying, I think I have found a recipe that tastes almost like the ones we enjoyed so much in India.

Chai Tea Recipe


  • 2 black tea bags
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

  1. Place your teabags in a small pot filled with 5 cups of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Once the tea has steeped, lower the heat, remove the bags and stir in the spices.
  3. Pour 5 tablespoons of condensed milk into your cup, then add the tea and stir until creamy.
  4. Feel like you've jet setter to India (without the jet lag and expensive flight)...and enjoy! :-)
