some times all a day needs is chai

ingredients


And when those days come you search high and low for your ingredients and pray that you remembered to pick up that little nub of ginger on your last grocery shop 'cause chai without ginger is like a summer day without sunshine.

And since sunshine should be a shared thing... you too can make you own cup of chai.


Chai Tea 


8 cups water

20 cardammon pods 

20 peppercorns 

15 cloves

3 cinnamon sticks 

4-5 slices of ginger root

1-2 tbsp tea

3-4 cups 1% milk 


Boil spices for 30 mins. Add tea - steep for 5 mins. Add milk - reheat to boiling. Strain, add a little honey, and use your mini whipper to froth things up a bit.  

Now, grab a good book, sit outside in the sunshine and sip contentedly.

  5. So I improvised;) I followed your instructions but then steeped in fresh ground coffee instead of tea...and then let it cool and served over ice....it was delicious!
