Recipe CHAI. The delicious exotic Tea experience

Following on the heals of my Chai making workshop at Qld Garden expo this week. Here is the Chai recipe we made. 

I have another workshop there this afternoon at 3pm. Yes We are making Chai again. 

Come along and get the low down on all the spices you can use, the massive choice of flavours and wellness benefits . 

Recipe For Chai . 

1. Take Black tea as the basis, or Rooibos if you want a caffeine free experience. Make the black tea or Rooibos 30% to 70% of the blend depending on your flavours and how spicey you want the Chai. 

2. Choose your spices. We use cardamon, cinnamon, star anise, clove buds, ginger  and sometimes we add in some turmeric, fennel, aniseed or other aromatic spices to add an extra unique flavour. 

3. Use 15 grams of Chai mix that you have made to 500ml of water. Add boiling water to your saucepan and add in the herbs and teas. Then allow to simmer for about ten minutes. Add in another 150ml of either plant mylk or animal milk. The add a pinch of salt and add either maple syrup or honey to taste. ( you can add sweetener in individual cups if preferred) 

4. Keep the heat on the Chai and milk until its hot. Do not boil the milky part. Then strain and serve. 

You can also make a simple infused chai by taking the tea and spice mix and adding 5 grams to a teapot per 300ml boiling water. Make exactly the same way as you would make a normal pot of tea. its delicious either way.
