Masa became well-known for his fresh chai brewed at Masalisa. Made with black tea, his signature "house chai" can be brewed in a saucepan in just a few minutes. You can serve it straightaway or store a supply in your refrigerator... Either way, it will be fresher-tasting than any chai you'd find in a box.
You can make it hot or iced. Simmer 1 tbsp. for 10 fl. oz. water for a few minutes in a saucepan and strain. Add hot milk and sugar for an Indian-style masala chai, or steam milk for a coffeehouse-style "chai latte." For iced, brew the tea as normal, sweeten to taste, and chill. Pour over ice and add cold milk.
Unlike instant spiced chai from a box, this blend has the added advantage of letting you customize the level of sweetness to your personal taste. The flavor profile is fairly spicy, but not overwhelming.
