The flavor of this Masala Chai recipe is herbal, peppery and sweet, it manages a depth of flavor that is both bold and delicate.
My introduction to chai didn’t take place until my early twenties. It seems a bit crazy that it took this long for me to discover chai considering that both it and I are from India. At a young age I was adopted from India and brought up in America. My adoptive father’s heritage is Italian and my mother’s is Scottish so needless to say chai was anything but common and it hadn’t made a splash in the coffee shop, scene yet.
