img_5816

Masala chai is a spicy flavorful tea prepared in India. This is perfect beverage to enjoy with snacks. This is very soothing when had during monsoon and winter season. There is many roadside shops offering masala tea in India and it is very good experience to taste it at least once there. I love to enjoy this chai at home watching the rains. This is prepared by adding spices like cardamom, cinnamon, pepper corns and bay leaves.
