Chai is world renowned for being sweet and spicy. The masala is usually kept secret and is passed down from mother to daughter. Here is one of my favourite recipes for creating your very own homemade chai — ssshhh don’t tell my mum I shared it with you!
This is the ideal drink to make when the weather turns chilly and the dark nights draw in. You can add whatever alcohol you fancy but I prefer brandy. It seems to work beautifully with the spices and citrus.
