How to Make Tea at Home, the Easiest Way

Chai… Garram garam chai!!!!

If you are an Indian and a chai lover, you will, definitely, be able to relate to one of these words or phrases – chai ki chuski, ek garam chai ki pyali ho toh maza aa jaye, chai pi ke jaiye, chahas lagi hai and more. If you use such words often, tell us in comments below… I’ll love to know πŸ™‚

The first thing I’d learnt to make on gas stove was tea, if you did too, share your experiences.

  1. I love my Keurig because I’m lazy and convenience is awesome, but nothing beats a real, home brew. I’m happy to know that authentic (or pretty darn close) tea is not only quick and easy, but also delicious looking.

  2. Well, I used to make it in a different way but made chai ur style today and the chai was really good in taste. It’s good to find such easy recipes here on Foodeezjunction.com πŸ™‚


    1. I use CTC granules with longer leaves. I don’t know if you can find Tata Tea Gold at your place. If you find it (may be at an Indian store), go for it, that’s superb in taste πŸ™‚ … Else find the one with longer leaves (CTC).
