easy vegan chai

This first snowy day of the season called for the stimulating cardamom, clove & cinnamon scents and flavors of chai.  I use loose organic Rishi Masala Chai but any high-quality blend will do.  Filling the mug then adding half a mug of almond milk gives the right portion, as some water steams off while infusing the spices.  For an extra kick, toss a small slice of fresh ginger root in the simmering tea.

Time: 12 minutes
Ingredients:chaiandcashews
water to fill your mug
2 T (approx.) loose whole leaf chai blend
almond milk, unsweetened vanilla
sugar to taste, 1 -2 spoonfuls

steam

Method:
Step One: Fill your mug with water; pour into small saucepan. Add 2 T loose chai if you have a large mug like the one pictured; more or less depending on size. Cover and bring to boil.

Step Two:  Lower heat and simmer near boiling, partially lidded so steam can escape, for ten minutes.

Step Three:  Fill your mug halfway with almond milk; pour into simmering tea.  Let it heat up for one minute.

Step Four:  Pour ‘milky’ tea through a strainer and enjoy.

  2. Much healthier, and I’m sure tastier, than the chai you get from Starbucks! I’ve got to try this! 🙂
