My Homemade Chai Recipe

grande soy chaiChai is a spiced tea popular in India and other parts of the world. Chai tea is made with black tea, or sometimes green tea, and a mixture of herbs and spices. Chai is served with milk and sweetened with sugar or honey.

I order soy chai more than coffee. I like my chai strong and spicy. After trying different packaged chais, I decided to start making my own. There are lots of different chai recipes available and I’d like to share mine with you.

4 slices fresh ginger, size of a dime
10 green cardommon
6 whole cloves
12 whole black peppercorns
2" piece of cinnamon
1 whole allspice
1/4 tsp whole coriander
1/4 tsp dried orange peel
ground allspice & mace, a sprinkle of each

boil in 4 cups water for 10 minutes
add 4 bags black tea, steep for 5 minutes

Sweeten with honey or sugar, add milk, soy milk or better yet hemp milk to taste
