Recipe of the Week: Chai Tea

I’m trying to cut back on my coffee consumption, but it’s the ritual I miss the most of all.

Hence, my latest discovery – a lovely winter’s day treat. Authentic chai tea.

Brew it yourself in a saucepan on the stove.

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup milk

Place in a saucepan and bring to boil with:

1/2 stick cinnamon

2 cloves

2 cardamom seeds (or 1 ml/dash of cardamom powder)


When it comes to a boil, add:

2 tbsp black tea leaves (Darjeeling or Ceylon)


It will boil up again. Turn the flame down and leave to steep for 1-2 minutes. Strain into cups, add sugar and enjoy.


What’s your coffee alternative?

    Ooh, sounds delicious, Bob. Thanks for sharing. Where do you get the Krakus from? Do you make it yourself? Or have a secret source?
