Spiced Masala Chai Brewing Tips:
Bring cold, filtered water to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Use one rounded teaspoon of loose leaf tea placed in a tea ball or equivalent, for each cup to be made. Pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Steep for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, remove the tea leaves to prevent further steeping. Enjoy!
4oz of loose leaf tea will make approximately 40 8oz cups of prepared tea, depending on how strong you like it.
If you like your tea stronger, add more leaves, do not steep longer. Steeping your tea too long can cause the tea to turn bitter tasting.
Do not allow your water to boil too long, water that has been over boiled will produce a flat cup of tea.
Pour the water onto the tea, do not add the tea to the water. This will prevent the leaves from steeping properly and result in a poor cup of tea.
