I have a question for anybody that reads this. I boiled half cup of milk, and a half cup of water, and then put the tea and the water/milk into a pot. The tea tastes pretty weak to me, does anybody know if there is a better way to brew it, or if there is something I’m missing?

Thanks

Steeped chai does tend to taste weaker then boiled chai – I usually let it go at least 10 minutes. It’s because the spices don’t infuse the same way tea leaves do, but they take up volume in the blend, so you’re getting fewer tea leaves per measure. To make a stronger chai, add the masala chai to the water/milk while it is boiling and boil all together for a little bit. The larger the spice pieces in the blend the longer you want to let it cook. Also, if you use sugar, cook that in the chai too for the best flavour.
