"I've spent so much money buying cartons of liquid chai concentrate and have tried many times to make it myself. Well, today I researched ruthlessly and this (which I made up on my own) is the concentrate I've been waiting for! Keep in mind everybody has a different masala chai preference and you should adjust it to your liking - I like a little spice, not too sweet, and an overall balance of flavors. Enjoy!"

"I tried this recipe and it was my first attempt at making my own chai concentrate. I loved it! I like my chai as spicy as possible and this was pretty spicy! I live in a small town so the grocery store has limited selection of spices, but I used ground ginger (instead of fresh/dried ginger) and anise seeds (instead of star anise). One thing I would recommend before you start making this to make sure you have a strainer that catches fine particles! I didn't have anything be a tea ball with a spring that made it snap shut, so I had to hold it open. It hurt my hand and was very tedious! But I still enjoy the chai very much!
