Tarla Dalal    you have to use saffron strands, if you find the cloves are a lot you can always reduce it the next time but for this time, add little less chai masala while making the tea so the taste of the cloves will be lesser...

Tarla Dalal    Hi Kavita, We do not have an idea. Try using small quantity first and then add it if you feel it is less flavorful.
