Indian Spiced Tea is also called chai
or masala chai
("chai" means tea in several of the Indian languages). There are several national brands available, from Celestial Seasonings, Tazo, Stash, and others. Right now I have Stash Decaf Chai Spice Tea :rolleyes: teabags that contain:
- black tea (decaffeinated)
- ginger root
- cinnamon flavor
- clove oil
- cardamom oil
We brew it, sometimes with additional black tea, and add milk and sweetener. Many recipes I have seen for spice tea say to steep the tea and spices (your choice) in hot milk and then strain them out. Or you can brew it like any other tea with hot water and add milk if you like.
I confess :blush: to using teabags -- my favorite being Tea India, which I haven't seen in my supermarket for many months (although they have the plain bags). Celestial Seasonings didn't seem spicy enough, it was heavy on other flavors, not the cinnamon and cardamom that I like. But it's easy to find, and you might like it.
