Spiced Apple Chai Tea, Black Loose Leaf, Camellia sinensis
Add the flavor of a crisp autumn apple to a cup of traditional chai and you have a winning tea.
Chai or cha is the generic word for "tea" in South Asia.
But, for many English speakers the word "chai" has come to imply "masala chai".
In southern parts of India street vendors called "chai wallahs" serve chai.
The traditional brewing process boils or simmers the tea leaves over instead of steeping them .
Some of the chai masala spice mixtures still in current use are derived from Ayurvedic medical texts.
To prepare one cup of Chai , first combine one half cup of water with one half cup of milk in a pot over heat.
Sugar may be added at this point or after.
The mixture is brought to a boil and 1 teaspoon of loose Chai Tea is placed in a tea infuser and added.
The chai is immediately taken off the heat, covered, and allowed to sit for approximately 10 minutes to allow the Chia Tea to infuse.
Usually, whole milk is used for its richness.
Some people like to use condensed milk in their masala chai to double as the sweetener.
