How I Prepare Chai

Chai I love

 If you are in search of a chai, check out Chai Gardens!

I have tried quite a few chai,  pre-brewed, from a tea bag and loose leaf…….

 I must admit, the chai  from Chai Gardens are the best I have tasted.  And no, I am not getting paid to say so! She is so knowledgeable when it comes to all her ingredients. She is an artist of creating a great tasting and/or healing chai.

But if you have a chai you love feel free to use it!

What You Will Need

Things you will need……

  • Stove top
  • Your Favorite Chai
  • Milk ( or milk alternative, I use oat milk)
  • Mortal and Pestle (optional)
  • Spoon
  • Mug
  • Fine mesh tea strainer

Prepping Your Chai

  1. Using a mortal and pestal grind up you chai (if you have a chai from Chai Gardens this is recommended) 
  2. Put one part water to one part milk ex. 1/2 cup of milk to 1/2 cup of water (or in case of the milk alternative I just do 1 cup oat milk) into a large enough pot on the stove

Cooking Your Chai

  1.  Place the chai spices in the milk/milk alternative, and then put the stove burner on medium/ high heat until the bubbles rise in the milk
  2. Set burner to low/simmer  for an additional 5- 10 minutes depending on how strong you want the flavor.
  3. Once it has simmered for the preferred amount of time( I  notice it becomes a darker, off white color) remove from heat
  4. Strain the Chai spices out  the mixture with a fine mesh/metal strainer into your favorite mug
  5. Drink and enjoy!(chai can be used again 1-2 times)

Enjoying A Warm Cup of Chai
