All You Need to Know About Chai

In fact, once you learn all there is to know about this delicious drink, you might just find yourself becoming a bit of a chai connoisseur.

1. What Is Chai?
At its core, chai is a type of tea made by brewing black tea with spices and herbs. The specific spices and herbs can vary depending on the region where the chai is made, but typically, they include things like cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and cardamom. Chai originated in India but has since become popular all over the world.
2. How Is Chai Made?
There are two main ways to make chai: with milk or without milk. If you’re making chai with milk, the first step is to simmer whole milk and water on the stove until it comes to a boil. Then, add your choice of sweetener (more on that later!), black tea leaves, and spices. Allow the mixture to simmer for another few minutes before strainings the tea leaves and serving.
If you’re making chai without milk, the process is largely the same with a few key differences. First, rather than using whole milk, you’ll use water. Second, you’ll need to steep your tea leaves for longer since they won’t have the fat from the milk to help them release their flavor. Other than that, just sweeten and spice to taste and enjoy!
3. What Does Chai Taste Like?
Chai has a rich, complex flavor that is at once earthy, sweet, spicy, and slightly bitter. The combination of spices lends itself well to both sweet and savory dishes alike; in fact, many people enjoy using leftover chai as a marinade for meat or vegetables.
