A Cup of Chai in India

I don’t normally drink tea, but in India we were constantly being offered cups of chai, and I got so that I couldn’t get through my afternoon without chai’s restorative powers.

  1. It’s amazing how fast you get addicted to chai. Tastes so good! We always had a cup of nice, stimulating chai after our afternoon nap, when we were in Goa last winter.
    Beautiful photos!

    • I like it best with minimal amounts of black tea and lots of milk, sugar and ginger. In the summer I often brew up a batch of concentrated hibiscus tea to which I add ice and soda water, but I’ve never thought of brewing a batch of chai for winter. What a great idea!
