If you're here, reading this, I'm sure you'd agree that chai is delicious! But, we've all experienced a bad one; more often than not that's because it was brewed incorrectly. If you've bought (or made your own) chai, and you want to truely enjoy it and explore its flavours, then this guide to brewing is for you. I'll take you through both the regular and traditional methods to making the perfect cup.
But first, a few tips...
Chai LOVES milk that has a little more fat content, creating more of creamier chai so that it doesn’t taste to watery. For a really creamy chai always use more milk to water ratio.
Creamy milks and alternatives
When using a thinner milk alternative such as almond, you might want to use 100ml of water and 400ml of almond as an example. Full cream milk you can get away with half water half milk. It's really a trial and error until you find what you love best!
I have prepared a guide for you to download and an instructional video on how to brew chai, both regular (no milk) and traditional. Enjoy! If you have any feedback or questions, leave a comment on this post.
