Finely grind spices in an electric spice grinder. A coffee bean grinder can work, but they tend to be less durable. Be sure to use Ceylon cinnamon, which is soft, as the hard cassia cinnamon will not grind easily. Powdered spices may be used but will lack the flavor of freshly ground spices. Store chai masala in an airtight container.
