INGREDIENTS

CHAI

  • 2.5 glasses of boiling water
  • 3-4 tbsp loose leaf black tea or 6 teabags
  • 2.5 glasses of plant milk (I love using oat milk or coconut milk, but soya and almond work)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

MASALA

  • 20 cardmom pods
  • 12 cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ginger (powder or fresh)
  • 1/3 tsp black pepper
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick

      METHOD

      • Add the loose leaf tea and hot water to a saucepan and bring to a boil (~3 minutes)
      • Meanwhile, Grind the masala ingredients: cardamom, cloves, ginger, black pepper and cinnamon in a blender into a powder
      • Add into the boiling tea, stir, and pour in 2.5 glasses of plant milk
      • Continue to heat until the tea bubbles and begins to froth slightly at the top (~3 minutes) . Once this happens, the chai is ready!
      • If you like it sweet, add a little maple! Now here's a surprisingly delicious tip, try dunking your toast (with a little coconut oil spread) into the chai. It's delicious! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
