Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a flowering plant of the ginger family and native to India and Southeast Asia. The roots are harvested and boiled, dried and then ground down. Turmeric has grown in its culinary usage over the years, appearing in many sweet and savory dishes. It is desired for its potential health benefits and appealing bright gold color.

The grade of tea commonly used for Chai is known as ‘Cut, Tear and Curl (CTC)’, a heavily rolled black tea leaf ideal for boiling. Boil leaf in water (around a teaspoon per 8 ounces) for 3 minutes. Add the milk of your choice in ratio of about 1/4 milk to 3/4 water, stir and simmer for another 2 minutes. Strain the brew to remove tea leaves and add the sweetener of your choice.
