Indians, whose tea culture is much younger than the Chinese, and is very strongly influenced by the British, when making Masala Chai also use half milk, half water to brew the tea. Some say that adding the milk to the cup first before adding the tea can insulate the china cup from thermal shock, and prevent cracking.
