Chai (or cha, shay) means actually 'tea' in most Asian languages but through the mysterious power of marketing became synonymous with spiced tea.

The traditional way to make a chai masala in India is to cook the tea leaves with fresh spices, milk, and sugar to create a thirst quenching, affordable drink. There is a tea stall with a chaiwala (teaman) serving chai masala on every busy corner (see picture).
