Masala Chai

Enjoyed by millions in India, Masala Chai is now popular around the world. Although there are many chai blends available in supermarkets, making your own is quick, satisfying, and the results are much better. A steaming freshly made cup of masala chai is my favorite way to start a cold winter day.
