Masala Chai Tea – a creamy, warming, comforting and spiced tea. It’s the perfect drink to enjoy cuddled up with a blanket and a good book. It does not need much effort, all you need is just a pot with 6 ingredients!


  • 3 tea bags, Darjeeling Tea or Assam Tea
  • 2 whole cinnamon stick
  • 4 to 6 green cardamom pods
  • 3-4 whole cloves
  • 3 to 4 cups boiling water
  • 1 inch ginger, sliced
  • 2 cups fresh milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste


  1. In a medium saucepan or metal add all the spices, water and ginger. Bring to a boil over high heat, about 3 to 5 minutes.

2. Add tea bags and dairy-free milk of choice and lower heat to low and maintain a simmer for 15 minutes. Then turn off heat and let steep for 5 minutes or longer for deeper flavor.

3. Add sweetener of your choice. Strain through a fine mesh strainer before serving.

Bon appétit!
