If you have been to India you might be forgiven to believe that Chai is a human fuel that keeps the people of India powered up!  It is packed full of remedial benefits from improving digestion to fortifying the body’s immunity.  The caffeine from the tea makes for an alert mind and the sugar provides the body with energy. All in all I suppose it is quite like human fuel!

  • 3 1/2 cup of Water
  • 4 Green cardamom
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Cloves
  • 2 Tea bags Loose tea is even better
  • 500 ml Milk
  • 4 tbsp Sugar Adjust to taste


  • Add the water to a saucepan.
  • Add the spices to the water and set it to boil.
  • Let the water come to boil and then soon after add the tea.
  • Let the tea boil and then simmer for another minute.
  • Add the milk and put the heat on full. When the tea comes to boil, reduce the flames again to bring the boiling down to a simmer.
  • Simmer for at least 5 minutes. Simmering helps to blend and fuse flavours together. I prefer to simmer for even longer.
  • Add the sugar while it's simmering.
  • Tea is ready to be served. Strain and pour the tea into cups. Best to drink while it's hot.
