Drinking chai or tea at various hours of day and night is a centuries-old tradition in India. Indian Chai is a combination of black tea, milk, spices, and sweetener, boiled together and served with savory, tangy, popular snacks. You can find Chai-wallahs (tea vendors) on every street corner, in train stations, movie theaters, and of course hotly debated conference rooms. Many important decisions are taken over several cups of masala chai (spiced tea).

Chai is often accompanied with finger-licking snacks known as Nashta. Nashta is never a full blown meal but is a tempting, much desired half meal that will leave you satisfied and craving for more. In this class we will prepare the chai and learn to make the spice blend. We will also make a variety of 3 to 4 different snacks as an accompaniment to the masala chai.
