This post isn’t just a “how to make a delicious beverage”. (And this masala chai is super delicious by the way.) It is also a new milestone for curryandlove.
Since I have started with this blog I moved from Portugal to Slovenia. And then to France. And then back to Slovenia. I have been working as head of the kitchen in past almost-a-year-period and created a base in Ljubljana.
But I had this constant feeling of needing to go again. In the world or in the wild. Experience new things, meet inspiring people, live from backpack and eat street food in various places.
And actually that is what we are going to do.
In April me and Klemen are starting a journey for an xyz period of time. And we are starting it in India.
That is the reason why I wanted to share this chai masala (an easy spice mix to add to your tea) with you. I was in India in 2011 and it was everywhere. Super sweet and delicious. And I can’t wait to try it again there.
Sending you a lot of good energy! And I hope this recipe works out well for you guys.

Make the chai masala
It will make a big difference, if you use high quality spices. Also - if you have access to a coffee grinder try to ground most of the spices fresh.
And then you just mix all the spices together, put them in a small jar and store for upcoming tea sessions.
Add water, plant based milk and 2 teaspoons of chai masala in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Then add 2 teaspoons of black tea (or two tea bags) and let it gently simmer for about 2 minutes. Set aside for a minute, strain and pour tea in cups.
Serve with sugar or other sweetener if you want to.
You can change the ratio of spices in chai masala if you want to.
I used coconut milk and it was really delicious.
Of course add sweetener of your choice to it if you want to!
