Chai Tea Recipe
Now that fall is officially here we wanted to share our classic Chai Tea recipe.
Not too spicy, not too sweet and it's so simple to make!
You can make a large batch and keep it in the fridge warming it up all week long for the perfect fall drink.
Here's how you do it:
Makes 4-6 servings depending on how you like your tea to milk ratio (multiple recipe as needed)
- 10 cups of water
- 5 tsp ground cinnamon
- 3 tsp ground all spice
- 3 tsp ground cardamom
- 3 tsp nutmeg
- 10 whole cloves
- 10 Tbsp real maple syrup
- 10 bags of black tea
1. Add water to a large pot on the stove and mix all spices. Bring this mixture to boil.
2. Turn stove off and stir in maple syrup.
3. Add the tea bags into the hot liquid. Let steep for 5 minutes.
I clip mine over the edge of the pot with a metal chip clip so the bags can be easily removed after steeped.
4. Remove tea bags and toss them.
5. Set up a fine strainer over the container you'll be storing your tea in. Carefully strain the tea - pour until you've only got spices left in your pot. It might take a few times to get all the liquid out and you might have to stop and rinse out the strainer.
6. Pour a cup of your yummy Chai, add your milk of choice and a sprinkle of cinnamon if you're feeling fancy and ENJOY!
Store your tea in the fridge for up to a week.
