Make tea. Take first sip. Help kids find shoes for 45 minutes. Finish cold tea. Sound familiar? Well then, you’re going to love this masala chai tea recipe! Infused with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, fennel and peppercorns, it’s absolutely delicious both hot and cold. Most people probably tend to prefer one or the other, but I usually get to experience both with just one cup. 🙂
Unlike my adaptogen chai tea recipe – which incorporates herbs that help the body adapt to stress – this recipe is true to blends found in India. Masala chai literally translates as “spiced tea,” so it’s no surprise that it’s full of rich, full-bodied spices that fill the kitchen with a delightful aroma when brewed.
This chai tea mix is easy to put together and makes a delicious gift for teachers, friends, grandparents, co-workers, neighbors, and whomever else you want to make smile. Put it in a cute mason jar and voila! You have an instant gift that just about everyone will love.
