Chai - a perfect tea to warm you up

Updated: Aug 10, 2022

I love Chai, especially in winter! It tastes yummy, keeps me warm and provides healing properties.

Making your own chai is really easy. Packaged or pre-made chai often contain high amounts of sugar or dairy.

Serves 2


  • 2 tbsp organic, rich black tea (1-2 tea bags)

  • 6 cardamom pods

  • 3 whole cloves

  • 1 inch of graded fresh ginger

  • 2 star anise (optional)

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 3 cups pure filtered water

  • 1 - 2 cups milk of your choice


  • Lightly crush the cardamon pods, cloves, ginger and star anise, and place in a pot

  • Add water and bring to boil

  • Add the black tea and let it simmer for a minimum of 5 minutes - the longer, the more flavour

  • Add your milk of choice and let is simmer for another 1-2 minutes

  • Enjoy

Black tea contains caffeine, therefore it is best to drink it earlier in the day.
