How To Make Chai:

  1. Put one cup of water in a pot and keep it on medium heat.
  2. Shred approximately one teaspoon worth of ginger into the water.
  3. Put in a big pinch of cardamom powder.
  4. Raise the heat and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Once water begins to steam, put in 2 tablespoons of loose Indian tea leaves. Let it sit for a couple of minutes and then cover the pot with a lid or plate for about 3 minutes.
  5. Remove the lid and put in 1 cup of milk. The more milk you put in, the creamier it will taste. For a good balance, 1 cup of milk is recommended to balance the flavor.
