Masala Lemongrass Chai


A favourite monsoon recipe from Maharashtra, this is an uplifting blend of Assam black tea, seasonal lemongrass and end notes of fresh ginger.

Available in 50g and 100g

As the morning sun glimmers behind the rain-swollen clouds, the women folk in Dahanu come out into the aangans (courtyards) of their homes to pluck fresh lemongrass for their morning chai.

It's a tradition that has prevailed in the districts of Maharashtra for generations. Lemongrass chai has a tangy sweetness and is much sought after for its health-promoting properties.

Directions (6oz, 180ml)

Add two parts water (4oz, 120ml) to one part milk (2oz, 60ml) and bring to a boil. Then add 1 tsp of tea and 1 tbsp sugar. Stir and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, till coppery brown. Strain.
