Gurpreet's Quick Chai Tea

April 5, 2022 at 11:13 AM

Originating in India, Masala (spice) Chai (tea) traditionally combines black tea and milk with a mixture of spices and a little sweetener to taste. You can use powdered or whole spices, but whole spices freshly ground or grated will give a more fragrant flavour to your chai. 

Dianna Tawharu (naturopath in our Milford store) says that spices have many properties that help us maintain good health, for example, spices are known to aid digestion. Most spices also have antimicrobial properties and contain antioxidants that protect our cells from damage. Some spices help with circulation and help keep cold out of the body. Ginger in particular has blood thinning properties.

Gurpreet is a long standing member of our accounts team and has kindly shared her recipe for us all to enjoy!
