How to Make Authentic Indian Masala Chai


  • 2 cups of water
  • 2–3 tablespoons of loose black tea or 2–3 tea bags
  • 1–2 tablespoons of Indian Masala Chai spice blend
  • 2–3 teaspoons of sugar or honey, to taste
  • 1/4 cup of whole milk, or more to taste (optional)


  1. Bring the water to a rolling boil in a pot.
  2. Add the tea and the Indian Masala Chai spice blend, and place the lid on the pot to keep it hot.
  3. Simmer the tea and spices for 5–7 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Strain the tea into a pitcher or cup.
  5. Add the sugar or honey to taste, stirring well.
  6. Add the milk, if desired. (Note: adding the milk at the beginning can reduce the potency of the tea.)
  7. Stir well and serve immediately.


  • Start with 2 tablespoons of Indian Masala Chai, then increase the amount if desired.
  • If you are using whole milk, heat it up first before adding it to the tea.
  • You can also add other spices or herbs to customize the flavor of your masala chai. Some popular additions include cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.
  • For a stronger cup of tea, add more tea or steep for a longer period of time.
