Chai season!

The coziest of seasons is upon us :) Put on a sweater and some snuggly socks, light some candles, brew my dad's famous chai to bring the most aromatic experience to your kitchen as well as a warm, nourished feeling to your body and mind.


the spices in this tea stoke your digestive fire (Agni) so that you can keep burning (and thus shining!) all winter long :)

Ingredients:


3 cups of water

2 cups of organic milk**

3 Tbsps red rooibos OR black tea

1.5 inch cube of fresh ginger root, finely chopped or grated***

1/4 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp cardamom seeds

2 cinnamon sticks

1/2  tsp fennel

1/2 tsp coriander

7-10 black peppercorns

7-10 whole cloves

Maple Syrup or Sucanat to taste

**Milk can be replaced with almond milk, hemp milk, coconut milk or water

***Fresh ginger can be replaced with 1 tsp of dry ginger


How?

Boil the water in a medium sauce pan.


Turn the heat to low and add the spices. 


Simmer on low, covered, for 15 minutes.


Add the tea and steep for an additional 8 minutes.


Add the milk and steep for an additional 2 minutes.


Strain into a separate pot or 4 individual cups, using a fine mesh strainer.

Bless, Share, sip and enjoy!
