India runs on the addictive, creamy, and flavoursome masala chai. It’s packed with flavour thanks to 5 or so spices added to it. Luckily there’s an easy way to make authentic masala chai without the pain of buying and grinding all the spices yourself – thanks to Everest’s Tea Masala spice mix.

Everest Tea Masala How To Make Masala ChaiIngredients (Serves: 1)

  • 1/4 teaspoon Everest’s Tea Masala (available at Indian grocery stores).
  • 1 cup full cream or single toned milk.
  • 1 teaspoon of Tata Gold Tea or Taj Mahal Tea (these black teas are the most commonly used in India and again available from Indian grocery stores).
  • 2 heaped teaspoons of white sugar.

Recipe

  1. Add the milk and tea masala to a pot and bring to lightly boiling.
  2. Add the tea.
  3. Lower the heat and let simmer for a few minutes. You’ll see the colour of the tea coming out. If it looks too light, add more tea.
  4. Add sugar and stir.
  5. Bring to the boil so the liquid starts climbing up the pan, then turn down heat and let simmer. Do this 3 times. The colour should be nice and brown now.
  6. Strain into a teacup and enjoy!

The Result

The perfect colour of Masala Chai. If you use milk with lower fat than single toned, it'll be a much lighter shade of brown. Photo by Connie Ma.
