Chai or Tea Masala is a combination of spices that can be ground, blended together and kept at home and used over a period of time. When made at home, we are ensured quality and it is definitely a money-saver. Just to clarify, the Tea Masala does not contain any tea, it’s a blend of spices that go into making the tea a lot better! Mix it with warm milk and give the kids anytime they have the sniffles or are feeling under the weather.
You can also use this powder to make our Chai Masala Cake!
