A closer look at chai ingredients
Traditionally, masala chai consists of a black tea base and a few core spices. A closer look at each ingredient lets us in on what each one brings to the pot.
Cardamon is an ancient herb that’s seriously fragrant with sharp vegetal notes of green spice and pepper, providing the perfect base for any chai to build on.
Cinnamon gives chai its sweetness and warmth, with its naturally sweet flavours providing a robust full-body taste without any bitterness or astringency.
Fennel adds an anise flavour and can be found in India, Europe, Middle-East and China, while fennel seeds are typically harvested when their heads turn light brown.
Milk and Sweetener
Milk and sweetener help to bring out spice’s natural flavour. Simmering highlights the milk’s inherent sweetness, while honey is often used to make the brew a little more palatable, according to your taste.
Star Anise brings a dark liquorice and sweetness to the mix.
Ginger brings a strong, perky tone to any chai mix. Hailing from the same family as turmeric and cardamon, it’s also known to be a great digestive aid.
Cloves leverage even more aromatic flavour into chai.
