Although not a traditional way to make masala chai, a chai concentrate is a great way to have a quick, easy cup of chai, anytime you like.

  • 5 cups water
  • 1/3 cup loose leaf Chico Chai (Original, Red, Chocolate or Turmeric) 
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Boil water in a pot on the stove. Add chai and simmer, covered for 30 minutes. Add sugar and stir to dissolve. Pour through a strainer into a 1 quart canning jar and put the lid on. Chill in an ice bath until room temperature. Store in fridge and keep for 1-2 weeks. Makes about 8 servings.
  • When serving: Mix your concentrate 1:1 with milk/alt milk and heat or pour over ice as desired.
