This is from my Aunt. I didn't find any other Chai recipes on zaar that were exactly like this one, so I thought I'd share!
- 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon clove
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 (14 ounce) can condensed milk (Sweetened or unsweetened I use sweetened)
- Mix the spices and condensed milk thoroughly. Refrigerate at least 24 hours. Brew a strong blank tea (Assams are good) or Rooibos for an herbal chai. Stir in 1/2 to 2 heaping teaspoons of chai concentrate per cup of freshly brewed tea.
I am not a tea drinker but I do love chai. I have never attempted to make a concentrate or a chai at home so I wasn't sure what to expect. This was very easy, only took a few minutes really. I eliminated the sugar because that seemed like a redundantcy to me after using sweetened condensed milk. I let the mixture sit for about 6 hours before I made my first cup of tea this evening and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I imagine that my cup in the morning will be even more flavorful after the flavors continue to blend. Thank you so much for a quick and easy way to make chai at home with ingredients I always have on hand. Now I just need to keep the black tea in my pantry as well!
