Chai (also known as masala chai) is drunk throughout India and consists of black tea brewed with an assortment of fragrant spices, evaporated milk and sugar. It makes a delicious and authentic drink to enjoy after a curry!

  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Serves: 4

  • Heat rating: 2/5
  • Dietary: n/a


  • 2 tea bags
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 170g evaporated milk


  • Chai Tea Blend (1 portion/ 3 tbsps): black pepper, cloves, ginger, mace, star anise, cassia, green cardamon Please note if you're making a bigger batch, you'll need to scale up the fresh ingredients in proportion but the spices only by 2/3 or it will be too intense!


  1. Simmer the tea bags, CHAI TEA BLEND and 2 tbsp sugar in 400ml water and the evaporated milk for 5 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved and the tea has infused
  2. Strain the chai between 4 small cups (discarding the tea bag and spices) and add extra sugar to taste
