OOH LA LA CHAI TEA RECIPE, Servings 4 cups
I N G R E D I E N T S :

  • 4 cups filtered Water
  • 2 cups Almond Milk or Coconut Milk
  • 5 tsp. Black Tea, 1 tsp. tea leaves per cup, plus one for the pot *
  • 2 sticks Cinnamon
  • 6 Cardamom Pods
  • 1 inch fresh Ginger, sliced, no need to peel
  • 2 Whole Cloves
  • 8 drops Stevia, liquid, for sweetness, optional

Note: A fine cut black tea from Kerala in South India is the best! However, if this is not an option – Simply grind a black tea of choice in a coffee grinder, it will make for a stronger tasting brew. Many teas will work well: Green, Rooibos (red tea, caffeine free, earthy flavor), Argentinian Mate or Peppermint.

  1. In pot, place water in along with all the spices – Bring to a boil, simmer for 30min. Turn heat off.
  2. Add Black Tea. Steep for 5 min. Strain into another pot.
  3. Add Almond Milk and Stevia, if using. On low to medium heat – Warm, don’t boil.
  4. Serve warm – Enjoyed with friends

Variation: Add 1 tsp. Black Pepper corns along with other spices (respiratory system affinity)
