  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 tsp Black Tea Leaves (Chai Patti)
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Chai Masala Powder
  • 1 cup Whole Milk


Make The Tea:

  • Heat water in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • When the water comes to a boil, add black tea, sugar, and chai masala powder and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add milk and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Strain the tea using a tea strainer.

Smoke The Tea:

  • While the tea is cooking, heat a clay mug over direct heat until it is very hot. Keep rotating it with the help of a tong so that it heats evenly on all sides.
  • Keep the hot mug in a deep pot and pour the strained tea into the hot mug.
  • The chai will froth vigorously like a volcano and pour out into the pot.
  • Once the frothing has subsided, pour the hot smoky tea into a fresh teacup or a clay mug and serve immediately.
