How to make masala chai (tea) in a microwave


Start with a strong tea bag, like Marks & Spencer, and add to a cup of water in a microwaveable mug.

Microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes to brew the tea.

Add 3 tbsp of evaporated milk and 2 tsp of sugar to each mug. Adjust milk and sweetness to your taste.

Microwave again on HIGH for 2 minutes. Watch carefully for spillage and extend/reduce time if needed.

Remove mug from oven. Tea should be bubbling and extra hot with a medium caramel color.

Using two tablespoons, squeeze excess liquid from the tea bag.

Add a quarter tsp of tea masala and stir.

Drink immediately!
