Homemade Chai Masala
Tea is a refreshing, easy to make Indian beverage which will give an energetic start to your day. Masala meaning a mixture of spices, is used to make tea. The secret to a great chai is in the masala, the spice mixture. To enhance its taste and make it healthy, add tea masala to it.
If you make the masala tea powder, then you don’t have to add any spices to the tea while making it, unless you want a strong hint and taste of a particular spice. Its best to make your own chai masala. You can add the ingredients you want. Also the chai masala or for that matter any masala you make at home is much more fragrant and strong than the ready made masala powders. The spices added to the masala chai have a lot of health benefits and the masala chai is one ayurvedic drink you can have during the day.
Chai Masala is easily available in market, but preparing it at home is very easy. Homemade Indian spices are pure, hygienic, unadulterated and very cheap in compare to market available version.
