This is SO much yummier than the chai tea bags or concentrate available in stores. The amounts are approximate, so don’t worry about counting out the herbs. It makes your house smell wonderful!
8 cups filtered water
1 inch ginger, peeled and sliced
1 stick cinnamon
20 cardamom pods, crushed with a mortar and pestle
½ tsp fennel seed
2 bags oolong or rooibos tea
1 Tbsp raw organic honey (omit for Level 1)
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk (optional)
Add water and spices to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add in teabags (with paper tags removed). Allow to steep 5 minutes. Strain out the spices and tea. Pour in to a mug. You can add almond milk and raw organic honey if you like.
