Tips and tricks:

  • If you want a spicier brew, separate some of the cardamom and let it simmer with ginger for 2 minutes before adding tea mix
  • Pour the chai from a high height to aerate, mix and further develop aroma
  • Always taste before straining! Made it too strong? Add more milk to balance it out. Made it too weak? Add more chai mix!
