tumeric chai spice tea mix
Just tonight tried the Tumeric Mix Chai Spice from Andrea @ Frugally Sustainable.
I made some changes to her recipe. This is what I did.
Turmeric Chai Spice Mix
-9 Tb ground turmeric
-12 tsp ground cinnamon
-2 tsp ground clove
-3 tsp ground cardamon
-6 tsp ground ginger
-2 tsp dried chilli pepper
Mix all together in glass jar. Store in cool dark place.
To make one serve - Steep 2 tsp Chai in 2 cups boiling water for 10 min in jug. Stir once during this time. Pour carefully into mug, leaving sediment in bottom of jug. Mix in sweetener to taste. Add from splash to 1/2 cup of milk, according to taste. I like just a splash of milk with 1 tsp sugar. Enjoy!!
Was a little unsure at the beginning of the brewing, but was pleasantly surprised in the end. A lovely drink that is good for me!! Next time I might cut the chilli down to 1tsp for the batch, may be a little on the spicy side as is!!
Go on. Give it a go!
What is holding you back from trying a new drink?
