International Tea: India

Being Indian, I have developed a liking for chai. It’s the only type of tea I really like to drink. 

Chai (which means tea in Hindi) is made with black tea, milk, sugar, and cardamom.(You could also add cinnamon and ginger if you like.)

Chai and cookies!

The tea and cardamom (and other spices) are brought to a boil and strained. Milk and sugar are then added and it’s served hot. Cookies/biscuits are usually eaten with chai for a great afternoon snack.

Aspicyperspective has a great authentic chai recipe. Check it out!

+Plus: In India you can get delicious ready made chai off the street from “chaiwalas” who have little carts and shops open at least every few blocks. Each serving is only a couple sips which is perfect for a quick pick-me-up 🙂

Stay caffeinated,

P
