Brew up your own sweet, spicy chai for a soothing morning treat
2 teaspoons black tea leaves
2 cardamom pods, bruised
1/4 cinnamon stick or 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon honey
1. Combine all the spices to create a Chai Latte Mix. At this stage mix can be stored for up to a month in a sealed jar.
2. Heat milk in a small saucepan or microwave until just below boiling point. Turn off heat, add spice mix and allow to infuse until for 3-5 minutes.
3. Stir in honey and strain out spices. Pour into tea cups and serve immediately.
For a larger batch to make 8 serves combine: 2 tablespoons black tea leaves 8 cardamom pods, bruised 1 cinnamon stick, roughly crushed 12 cloves 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 2 teaspoons ground ginger. Make this mix into a homemade gift by wrapping individual serves into bundles of muslin and tieing with string – these can be dropped straight into the saucepan!
