This Saffron – Rose Chai Tea Recipe is my perfect recipe to start your Valentine’s Day.

First of all, who wouldn’t love to wake up to a tea like this and if you plan to surprise that someone in bed with this one, it’s surely going to make your day!

It’s a mildly fragrant and soothing tea with just the right notes/mix of spices that absolutely refreshes you in every sip.

Growing up in India, I’ve seen that ‘Tea’ is one such magical word which brings a smile to everyone’s face and people are ready to drink it anytime of the day.

Now, this particular version of tea with spices is most commonly known as ‘Masala Chai’ in India.

Now once your masala tea/tea-mix is ready, you can add a number of flavors to it and that’s exactly what I do.

My ‘Chai Tea Mix’ or ‘Masala Chai’ ingredient remains the same and I just keep adding or removing different flavors/spices.

Since I looooove this mild-fragrant tea, I’ve made a huge batch of this Saffron – Rose Chai Tea mix and kept in an air-tight jar in my kitchen cabinet.

The tea mix is absolutely customizable, if you don’t like a particular spice, you can definitely remove it from the list or add a little bit more of a particular spice you like.

Sometimes, I even add an extra sprinkle of cinnamon on top too.

The tea is definitely delicious but at the same time it’s absolutely healthy and kind of detoxifying.

    Hi, I’m sorta confused. Not sure if you’ll respond. I know that we’re starting with 1 cup of black tea leaves, but how much of the chai tea mixture do you steep with the 2 cups of water recipe?

      Hi Daphne, Thanks for your message and you can use 2Tsp of the Tea Mix to make a medium flavored tea (for 2 people). Thanks, Molly
