Original recipe makes 1



Here is the method of how to make chai as you requested: 1. Add water in pan. 2. Add sugar, tea leaves and spices. 3. Bring to boil and simmer for a minute or so. 4. Add milk. 5. Bring to boil and simmer for 3-5 minutes. 6. Strain tea in teapot. To make chai for one person, one needs: 1 cup of water, see 1. above. 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of tea leaves and 1/4 teaspoon of spices, see 2. above. (depending on how sweet, strong and spicy) 1/4 cup of milk, see 4. above. (depending on how milky) NOTE: this tea is made with water but equally can be made with milk. Spices can generally be proportioned as follows: A. 1 one 1.5 inch cinnamon stick. B. 3-4 cardamoms (with shell). C. 2-3 peppercorns. D. 2-3 cloves E. 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder. Grind into a powder the items A-D and add E. In winter fresh ginger chai is very good, add 1cm2 chopped ginger with the spices. Can also add pepper at the same time to give a warm feeling. The spice list I mentioned is not complete. We usually add about 10 to 12 different types of spices for chai ground together. I am sorry I do not know the names of them in English.
