Chai Tea Concentrate– Makes about 3 1/2 Cups of Concentrate.
4 cups filtered water
10 Cloves, whole
10 Cardamom Pods, crushed
10 Peppercorns, whole
1/8 tsp Allspice
1/8 tsp Nutmeg, fresh ground is best
1/8- 1/4 tsp Turmeric (or 1/2 tsp fresh grated)
1/4 tsp Ginger ( or 1 tsp fresh grated)
2 Cinnamon sticks or 1/4 tsp ground
3 Tbl loose Tea or 4 Tea Bags- Rooibus (caffeine free), Green Tea or Black Tea. Organic is best!
Sea Salt- a pinch- optional
1/4 vanilla bean scraped (or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (Save the pod and add to sugar for vanilla sugar or make your own extract)- optional
Warmed Milk- I like cashew, oat, almond but anything you like will do.
- Bring water to a boil. Add everything. Let steep or VERY small simmer on Low for 15-20 minutes. Strain and enjoy with warmed milk and sweetener of choice. Start with a 1:1 ration of Chai to milk. Store in glass jars in fridge.
Note- If you don’t have all of these ingredients, don’t worry. If you don’t like or tolerate some of them, omit.
Adding some tangerine oil or zest, almond extract. These add a nice added flavor.
Make it your own. Have fun with it. Enjoy!
