I'm so excited to share my chai with you.
In India, it's traditional to make masala chai (spiced milk tea) every morning. It's been a meditative part of my morning routine for some time. Over the past two years, I've really enjoyed making and sharing my chai with friends, coworkers, and folks in Bend. Most people who've tried it here have remarked that they haven't tried any chai like it before. Most "chai tea" in America is overly sweet and has an unusual flavor profile (often heavy on cinnamon).
I enjoy making a simple chai with freshly-grated ginger, freshly-ground cardamom, a pinch of chai masala (spice mix). It's added to water and heated together for a few minutes with black tea and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Finally, I add whole milk until it boils and rises to the top. It's simple, but with the right balance, it's the perfect drink to start the day.
My plan is to make the fresh chai daily in small batches and distribute it to local cafes and coffee shops, allowing folks across Bend to try it. I hope you'll enjoy it.
