24 Jul Crastan presents: Masala Chai
Masala Chai is the Indian national drink. In Hindi it literally means “Spicy tea”. Even today it is common to find people selling this drink on the side of Indian roads, boiling a solution of milk, black tea and spices and straining it into cups.
Masala Chai is a creamy drink made with fine black tea and milk, characterised by inebriating sensations of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, which remind of far eastern atmospheres.
