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!

Tea Life is the best

Haha thank you! I've shared this to our Facebook page :)
Best Peppermint Tea

I love peppermint tea and have tried many loose leaf and bag varieties over the years. This tea is the BEST one I have had. I could tell I was in for a magical experience from the moment I opened the packet. It tastes wonderful. I could not recommend this tea highly enough. I will be buying more in the future!

Hi Sarah - wow what a great review, thank you! That's much appreciated. We've always got a lot on hand as we need to use this for a lot of other blends as well :)
Great tea and great service

The Teas are great taste and awesome quaility love drinking the night wish

Hi Leanne, thank you - this one was created as it's different to the rest of the other bedtime teas such as goodnight sleeping.
Another lovely mellow tea bloom

The yellow chrysanthemum bloom is very beautiful sitting on it's bed of green as this bloom opens into a slightly aniseed smelling tea at first, but when fully brewed tastes like a mellow silver needle tea that has a very subtle, fruity, sweet overtone. It's not overpowering or dominating in anyway and is very refreshing.

Hi Casey, thank you for your review! I really hope those samples have arrived....
Happy with my tea

Unable to purchase Decaf leaf tea from the supermarket It was refreshing to find that i could purchase this seemingly elusive product online at "Tea Life".
The service was excellent and the tea arrived promptly. I'm very happy with my tea purchase and would recommend this company. Many thanks Tea Life.

Hi Liz, thank you. We'd love to expand our decaf range actually but it's difficult to get a hold of. Hopefully this year will bring some new decaf teas!
