Masala Chai

Sunday Masala Chai for my very own Maharaja

*I finally perfected the recipe after a couple months of trial and error. Cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, fresh ginger, black pepper, fennel powder, soy, honey and black tea of course. It is really all about timing though...allowing each spice it's time to bloom.

*Oh...and I have a little sustenance for him too: An almond spelt cookie from Hawthorne Valley Farm, our weekly treat from the Green Market at Union Square.

Oh, I love Chai Tea. I'm still trying to perfect a recipe - it would be great if you'd share your recipe? The last time I added too much pepper!

Hi Shelley,
Thanks for your comments! Your blog is lovely.

Send me your email and I will pass along the method I've been using that seems pretty delicious. Though, there are so many different ways to make it.
