I’ve been making my own chai syrup lately and I can’t believe it took me so long to do this. It’s super easy to make and the syrup can be stored in the fridge for up to a month.
I’ve been making iced chai with the syrup but it can be used to make hot chai by just using hot milk.
2 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons chai loose tea (I used Palais des Thes’ Chai Impérial c/o)
In a saucepan, bring water to boil. Turn off heat and steep tea for 10 minutes. Strain tea.
Rinse out any remaining loose tea from saucepan and pour strained tea back into the pan. Add in sugar and simmer until sugar dissolves. Cool and store in fridge.
To serve, mix 1 part chai syrup with 2 parts milk of your choice.
