How to Make Masala Chai – Two Ways

  • Author: Mirriam Seddiq


This is how to make Masala Chai.


High-Quality Black Tea

Jaggery or Sugar to Taste

Fresh Ginger

Cinnamon Stick


Grated Nutmeg

Cardamom Pods

Black Peppercorns


1. Heat your black tea in your kettle (or however you do it)

2. Put your spices in your diffuser; if you don’t have one, use a cheesecloth to wrap all the spices in and drop in your tea as it steeps.

3. Next, I highly recommend using jaggery. You can use regular sugar, but it just isn’t the same.

4. Let your chai steep to your desire. Longer steep, more robust flavor. And adjust the sugar to your liking.


Serve with some Afghan Creme Rolls.
