Lifestyle — Posted 03/08/15

Brew up your own sweet, spicy chai for a soothing morning treat.


2 teaspoons black tea leaves

2 cardamom pods, bruised

1/4 cinnamon stick or 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 cloves

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 cups milk

1 teaspoon honey


1. Combine all the spices to create a Chai Latte Mix. At this stage mix can be stored for up to a month in a sealed jar.

2. Heat milk in a small saucepan or microwave until just below boiling point. Turn off heat, add spice mix and allow to infuse until for 3-5 minutes. 

3. Stir in honey and strain out spices. Pour into tea cups and serve immediately.


For a larger batch to make 8 serves combine: 2 tablespoons black tea leaves 8 cardamom pods, bruised 1 cinnamon stick, roughly crushed 12 cloves 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 2 teaspoons ground ginger. Make this mix into a homemade gift by wrapping individual serves into bundles of muslin and tieing with string - these can be dropped straight into the saucepan!
