INDIAN MASALA CHAI
Which is not really ‘classic’ the way I have given you sooo many options but hey .. “pierce the verbage and extricate the classic”
*Put milk/water on to boil ( note – see ‘tricky bit’ below)
*Add sweetener now if desired ( or wait till the end .. I like ‘now’ ).
*Add spices now .. or at the end in the cup. ( yours or ours – either our SPICE ONLY concentrate or one of OUR CHAIS ), or add them after you have strained the tea (it is very much a personal preference).
*When the liquid boils, add: ( ‘TRICKY BIT’ ahead )
*your own tea leaves,
*some milk if you used only water initially,
*and/or maybe now ( but better in the cup ) our TEA ONLY concentrate.
*Simmer a bit (for up to 1 minute-ish).
*Strain and pour in to a cup or bowl ( which may also contain our SPICES ONLY concentrate ( so the spices don’t get strained out with the tea ), and/or our TEA ONLY concentrate.
Contemplate sweetening … keep contemplating, that is a hot liquid.
