Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Cardamom
  • Cloves
  • Peppercorns
  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Black tea
  • Brown sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk

Buying Chai Spices

You will need to buy whole cardamom, whole cloves, whole peppercorns, and cinnamon sticks. It’s important that you buy the spices whole, not ground.

Typically, you can find whole spices in the spice section of most major grocery stores. I’ve also bought whole spices on Amazon before.

Choosing Your Tea

Traditionally, Assam and Darjeeling are the two types of black tea most commonly used in chai. If you can find them in your grocery store, I highly recommend using either of these teas!

If you’re interested in experimenting, I’ve even heard of some traditional chai teas made with green teas such as yerba mate or red rooibos before depending on the region!

However, if you’re not worried about authenticity, any type of black tea will work just fine in this recipe. I do recommend going for a higher quality black tea though for best results.

Tips for Perfect Chai Tea

  1. Crush spices with mortar and pestle – you can also use a wooden spoon and a bowl to crush spices if you don’t have a mortar and pestle
  2. Toast spices – this step is super important. Toasting the spices brings out a lot of the flavor in this tea!
  3. Simmer spices + ginger in water – simmer around 20 minutes to allow the spices to meld into the water.
  4. Steep tea – add the tea bags to the spice/water mixture and allow tea to steep 5 minutes or longer depending on your desired tea strength.
  5. Strain tea through fine-mesh sieve lined with a coffee filter/cheesecloth – it’s important you use a coffee filter or cheesecloth when straining so you don’t get spices sediment in your tea.
  6. Make homemade syrup – we’re going to be making a simple brown sugar syrup of just water and brown sugar. This gets simmered on the stove until the sugar is dissolved and then cooled.
  7. Chill tea – once the tea is strained, for best results we recommend chilling it completely before serving.
  8. Froth milk – you can do this either in a blender or shake it in a jar. Frothing the milk makes it just a little thicker and creamier.

Make Ahead Instructions

Tea may be brewed and stored in jars in refrigerator up to 6 days. For best results, we recommend storing tea separately from the milk to make it last longer. Froth the milk just before you are ready to serve chai.

When ready to serve, sweeten tea to taste with brown sugar syrup, pour chai tea over ice, and top with frothed milk.

Can I Serve This Chai Hot?

Yes, you sure can! To serve tea hot, serve immediately after straining or reheat in microwave or on stove.

Heat milk separately over medium heat until steaming (do not bring to a boil) then froth in blender or jar and pour over tea.
