How to make Masala Chai (Indian Chai Tea)


Step 4: Strain, Consume, Enjoy!

OK, now the last step before drinking. You need to strain out all of the solids (tea leaves and spices).

Place the tea strainer over the coffee cup, tilt the pot over the cup and strainer and pour. Hint: Do it in the sink because it WILL make a mess otherwise.

Discard the tea leaves and spice chunks in the trash or compost.

You will see the chai will have reached a nice rich tan color and a skin will have formed on the surface. Now you can drink it straight or add tea biscuits (aka cookies) or other assorted garnishes.
