The First Chai Try
September 04, 2012

Chai Latte With Masala Spices and MilkThe first time I tried chai was in the kitchen of my parent’s house, and served by my younger sister.  “You have to taste this—” she insisted, pushing a mug across the countertop to me.  She refused to elaborate on its contents.  The flavors, she said, would speak for themselves.
