How to Make Milk Chai

When I was in India I drank a lot of tea. There were days where I drank 5 cups of tea. India was also where I was introduced to milk tea. When I first tried it I didn't even recognize it as being tea. Everyday, the lady at the center for runaway boys would bring me my cup of milk tea. Even when I was at the train station scouting for runaways, one of the shoe shine guys brought me a tiny cup of this delicious beverage. I served it to my family tonight. My sisters loved it, my mom liked it and my Dad said that he liked hot chocolate better. India loves milk tea, and my Dad doesn't hate it. What more proof do you need. Try it and tell me what you think. Here is how I make it.

Your will need:
Masala Chai (I use tea bags, I enjoy Celestial Sweet Coconut Thai Chai)
A small pan
a Mug

1) Pick out a mug.

2) Poor half a mug of water and half a mug of milk into your pan

3) Bring the mixture to a boil

4) Reduce the heat and throw in your tea bag and let that simmer for about 4 minutes

5) Mix in a few spoon fulls of sugar.

6) Pour your tea in your mug, let it cool a bit and drink it

Don't try this with a teapot. I ended up with a burned hand and milkwater all over the kitchen floor. Nonetheless, tea still tasted nice in the end.
