Making masala chai at home is extremely easy, yet so many people will go to their favorite coffee shop and get one there instead. Often times they're using a concentrate that could be made at home in a few minutes, and have the best one you've ever had.


SUPPLIES:


INGREDIENTS:

  • 15 green cardamom pods or 6 black cardamom (I used a mix of these)

  • 4 cinnamon sticks (16g)

  • 1 Tbsp (10g) black peppercorns

  • 12 cloves

  • 1/4 tsp fresh grated or ground nutmeg

  • 2 3-inch strips oranges zest *optional*

  • 1/4 cup (55g) granulated sugar

  • 1/3 cup (45g) fresh ginger rough chopped

  • 1/2 cup (23g) loose leaf black tea


INSTRUCTIONS:

Method:

  1. Take your green/black cardamom, cinnamon sticks, black peppercorns and cloves and place in a baking sheet; toasting them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 6-8 minutes.

  2. Once toasted, combine your spices with 1 quart of filtered water in a pot. Add in your ginger which has been rough chopped, your granulated sugar, orange peels and ground nutmeg.

  3. Bring your mixture up to a boil over medium-high heat, then immediately reduce it down to a low simmer and let it sit for 10 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat and allow it to cool for 30 seconds. Drop in ½ cup of loose leaf black tea. Let it steep for 4-5 minutes.

  5. Strain your mixture and reserve your liquid.

Any recommendations on a really good black tea for making this? I love chai, but don't know much about loose leaf tea. I don't want to do a disservice to the recipe by using a mediocre tea from Amazon
