Kesar chai is a combo of strands of saffron and black tea stepped in creamy milk to create a sweet and decadent warm drink.
- Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan on medium-high heat. Add saffron threads, tea, and sugar; allow the spices and tea to steep together for ~2-3 minutes.
- Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add milk and stir. Allow the milk to boil, foam, and rise, which should take 5-7 minutes. Once it starts to rise, turn off the heat. It is important to keep a close eye on the pot, or the milk may overflow. Turn off heat.
- Using a tea strainer, pour tea into cups, making sure to divide equally. Add more sugar to taste.
