How to Make Chai Tea

Chai (pronounced as a single syllable and rhymes with ‘pie’) is the word for tea in many parts of the world. It is a centuries-old beverage which has played an important role in many cultures.

To make the best chai, whenever possible, start with whole spices and grind them yourself. This also saves money because you’ll have a bunch of chai spice mixture to make tons of chai whenever you want.
