Easy chai tea recipe for winter


This simple and easy to create winter chai recipe will warm you up this Australian cold season.
First you'll want to gather the ingredients below:

Tick off the ingredients you already have to help remind you what else you need!

A peeled piece of ginger around 2cm long
A stick of cinnamon
A bay leaf, dried
Cardamom seeds, around one teaspoons worth
Black peppercorns, also one teaspoon
Fennel seeds, this time 1/2 a teaspoon!
Cloves, 5 of them and make sure they're whole!
Around 3 cups water (750 ml)
Black tea leaves, a quarter of a cup of them
Half a cup of milk (125 ml)
Honey or brown sugar, take your pick

 

Step 1

Find a medium sized saucepain and place inside this lucky saucepan about to experience chai bliss the following ingredients below:

Ginger
Cinnamon
Bay leaf
Cardamom seeds
Peppercorns
Fennel seeds
 Cloves
750 ml of water

  1. You'll want to then boil all of this on medium to high heat - wait until it's boiling!

  2. Once it's boiling, take that heat down to low and let it just simmer for around five minutes - this will help the water absorb the flavours properly while you warm your cold winter hands besides the stove.
    Don't worry, we're not too far off now!

 

Step 2

Remember these other chai ingredients? Time to use them.Chai Tea Ingredients

Black tea leaves
125 ml of Milk

  1. After 5 minutes of that simmering in step 1, add those black tea leaves into the mixture that should be smelling pretty good by now.

  2. Strain the tea mixture into a large jug. This is honestly optional, as some people like to keep their chai bits floating around in there. Try to choose a jug or container that doesn't lose heat quickly.Set this mixture aside for 5 minutes just to let it absorb more.

  3. Return the tea to the pan, back where it belongs. We're nearly done!

  4. Stir in that 125 ml of milk. It changes everything.

  5. Use low heat on the pan and keep stirring. Really, keep stirring, you don't want the milk to burn.

Step 3

Honey/sugar symbolizes the completion of your masterpiece.

Pour the hot mixture into a teapot, mix in that honey or brown sugar, serve and enjoy!

Good flavour and great value

Thank you

Great service guys, many thanks

Thankyou Marina!
Lovely flavour

Lovely flavoured tea.
I really like the coffee taste alternative, but gave three stars for the fact it would be better in cup bags as I found it a little messy.

Hi Debra, apologies for that! If you do place another order please put 'tea bags' within the notes and I will provide you with some easy to use bags that you can cleanly place the chicory within using a small teaspoon. It's not necessary for 99% of teas here, but we're still thinking of providing some with each order just in case.
Awesome tea and service

I love this tea, it is so beautiful to look at especially with the colour change. The service is fantastic and would definitely recommend!

Thank you Anh, this one has been even more popular than we expected!
