Masala Chai

Masala Chai is a tea beverage made by boiling tea in milk and water mixed with aromatic herbs and spices. Evenings can’t better without chai ! Masala chai is prepared using spices and herbs mixed with tea powder and milk. I have added ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves to the tea which enhances the aroma and flavour of the tea. Masala chai helps to regulate digestive system and we always love it Super strong.
