3tsp / 1cup water / 1 cup lowfat milk
My mother is visiting this weekend so i thought id treat her to some chai. My parents went to india in the late 70:s and my mother has lots of good memories from there. One of thoose is chai tea.
I used 3 tsp this time for a bit more “spice”. Unfortunatly i only had low fat milk 0,5% at home. Next time ill use 3% or more. The result is more creamy..
However the flavour was good and my mother very happy. :)
A nepalese co-worker brought me back som milk tea from his vacation back home.
The tea was packed in foilbag packed in a small textile pouch with a ziplock. Nice looking.
The “tea” itself smells of strong spices and is shaped like small pellets. There is also a very fine spicepowder mixed in.
I choose to boil 1 tsp in 1 cup of milk for a few minutes, added a splash of sugar. I must say i was surprised at the result. the taste very much reminds me of the rodeside chaivendors of northern india. The ones where you are served in small ceramic cups that you discard afterwards. Very nice and easy to make. Seems to be some kind of lower quality tea more instant flavour thing with ground spices.
But perhaps that is the differance between Napal chiya and indian Chai. My indian imported chaiblends are with nice black tealeaves and more “chunky” pieces of the spices. Will have to look into that.
However the flavour is very pleasant. will have a chat with my co-worker for more information.
Will update with a picture, maybe someone recognize the shape.
