A cup of chai with Khao

Chai has always played a key role at home, whether it was the first thing we made to start our day, or a special afternoon brew to serve guests. Our love of chai and sharing our favourite things from Gujarati cuisine and culture is what inspired this homemade blend. Take a look below for your own Khao favourite, to enjoy at home!

Our homemade Masala Chai blend is available in two sizes, Small and Large. We hope you'll enjoy these as much as we do! 

Making your Masala Chai


Our ready made blend makes it easy to create a cup of masala chai to suit your preference. With this blend of Assam leaves, you can use a smaller amount of the mixture for a lighter chai. 


You'll simply need a cup or mug, a tea infuser or refillable tea bag, hot water boiled to 90 degrees and a sweetener of your choice. 


Add a tablespoon of the chai mixture into your tea infuser and pour in the hot water.


Allow it to steep for 3-4 minutes. Once the tea is well infused, you can add a sweetener of your choice if you like. For an even lighter chai, you can add some milk. 


For a deeper, more traditional chai why not try it the way we make ours! By boiling the chai in a pan, you are allowing both the water and milk to boil and create a stronger cup of chai. 


You'll need a pan, 1.5 cups of water per serving, milk and a sweetener of your choice. 

In a pan, add the water and let it come to a boil. Give the bag a good shake before opening. 

Add one tablespoon of the chai blend per serving and some more for a stronger brew. Let this boil in the water for a further minute.

Now add milk of your choice, dairy or plant-based works well here too. We love ours with Oat milk. Add enough until your water turns a light brown shade. You can adjust the amount of milk too based on your preference. 

Let it come to the boil, and then leave to brew on low heat for 5 minutes. Your chai is now ready, simply strain into a teapot or cups and if you are adding it, the sweetener of your choice. Enjoy!
