Masala Chai Tea

Masala Chai Tea created by Outta Here

A simpler chai tea recipe, from Etsy's Kitty Greenwald. She says: To use spices for infusions, cracking them releases their oils, but toasting isn’t necessary. Traditionally, masala chai has less milk. Feel free to add more milk or extra sweetener.
