Instructions Checklist
  • Heat milk in a saucepan until just boiling and remove from heat; add tea bag and let sit until tea has steeped, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove tea bag.

  • Whisk sugar, eggs, egg yolks, and salt together in a bowl. Pour 1/3 the milk mixture into the egg mixture, whisking constantly, until combined. Pour egg-milk mixture back into saucepan with milk. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until custard thickens and easily coats the back of a spoon, about 10 minutes. Well defined trails should appear when you drag your finger across the back of a coated spoon.

  • Stir butter into custard until melted; pour into serving dishes or ramekins. Chill custard in the refrigerator, at least 1 hour.

Foolproof. As in i had skim milk some coffee creamer and only two eggs total and i still managed it. Pro tip: if you're deviating just pay atttention to the "Coated spoon" tip. When it does that take it off throw in the butter and go for the fridge. Read More

This is seriously good. I had a bunch of tapioca pearls and needed something to put them in so I started researching custard recipes (which by the way tapioca pearls in custard is delicious). Chai custard is genius! What I had was powdered instant chai mix from Costco so I used that and added it as the sugar into the egg yolks instead of steeping bags in the milk. The only tricky thing about this recipe is the actual custard-making which is just finicky so if you can manage making a good custard you should absolutely try making a chai one!! Read More
