Masala Tea

Occasionally we brew our own Masala Tea otherwise hubby and I would order this tea at Indian restaurants. This recipe is from a Malaysian Women Weekly recipe card which I find the spices and tea are at the right balance. I've tried it with fresh milk and sugar but somehow maybe because it's low-fat milk, the tea didn't turn out creamy. I have tried using a non-low fat and evaporated milk version but they still lacked oommph. I find that using condensed milk gave a very rich and creamy tea. Feel free to experiment yourself.

babe,

I tried this tea before in Passage through India. Find it abit "powerfull". Maybe not used to the strong spicy taste.

Nice photo by the way!

skip the sugar. secret to good chai is using both condensed (sweetness) and evaporated (milkiness) milk. learnt this from my "kaur" friend...
