Here is the recipe of Typical Indian tea that most west-east, north and south Indians drink daily morning and evening. You are lucky! This article comes with my YouTube tutorial on the same:


11/4 cup drinking water

1 inch piece of ginger

2 pinches of tea spice

1 Tbsp of INDIAN Tea Leaves – any brand but Indian tea only

3/4th to 1 Tbsp of Sugar



I 1/4th cup drinking water


Start to boil

Grate 1 inch piece of ginger in the water



Add 2 pinches of tea spice = chai (tea) masala to the water ~ buy from any Indian grocery store or online

Simmer 3 minutes



Tea leaves 1 Tbsp

Sugar 1 Tbsp – More or less may be added as per requirement. No sugar won’t bring out tea’s flavor. Some sugar is needed. Please don’t use zero calorie sugar or honey!

Boil and then simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. The more you simmer, the stronger the taste. I prefer just 7 minutes

Add 1/2 cup milk – 2% cow’s milk: doesn’t matter organic or non-organic

Boil, allow to rise, reduce stove to slow – medium

Simmer 5-7 minutes

Strain using minute net strainer

Serve  hot with tea biscuits (cookies)


FOR 2 PEOPLE: 2 1/2 cups water, 11/2 Tbsp Tea leaves and same quantity of sugar, ginger and  spice.
