[Warm up with Spiced Chai]

When we feel cold, we crave for something warm. Chai, made with whole spices dried in their original form, makes us feel warm from the core even after drinking.

To make it, crush your favorite whole spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and peppercorns, then boil them with water and tea leaves, then add milk and cook further. If possible, crush fresh ginger and add it as well.

In addition to cow's milk, there is soy milk, and more recently, almond milk and oats milk. The soy milk tends to separate easily, so you can heat it separately and mix it in at the end.

For sweetness, we recommend brown sugar, but you can use honey, maple syrup, or whatever you like. If you remove the tea leaves and make it into spiced milk, it will be decaffeinated and perfect before bed. Spiced milk is an Indian Ayurvedic drink, and they also add refined butter called ghee.

Serve it in your favorite mouth-watering cup. We wish you a warm time with spiced chai.
