2 teaspoons of Loose Tea Leaves

2 teaspoons Sugar

How To:

Step 2 Shred approximately one teaspoon worth of ginger into the water.
Step 3 Put in a big pinch of cardamom powder.
Step 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.
Step 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.
Step 6 Put in two tablespoons of sugar and stir the chai.
