50g (5-6 servings) in an amber glass jar, and a scroll of instructions for how to brew a delicious cup of tea
This is my version of the traditional Indian beverage Masala Chai. Masala means a mixture of spices, and chai means tea. The spices of masala chai are activating to the digestion—especially helpful in the winter and around the holidays when we are eating lots of rich, sweet foods! They also help to heat the body and increase circulation. Both the digestive and warming actions are important for supporting the immune system. A strong chai served with milk and honey is one of my favorite comforting cold-weather beverages.
I call this “Divine Chai” because many of these spices (cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, rose, and hawthorn) have a special affinity for the heart. They tend to soften and open this energetic center of the body, inviting in more love, joy, and ease.
Add 1 soup spoon of herbs to the bottom of a pot. Turn on heat and, stirring constantly, toast spices until they are fragrant. Add about 500mL water and bring to a boil. Optionally: add milk until the liquid turns a nice creamy brown. Turn down the heat and let simmer for at least 20 minutes. Strain, add more milk if desired, and sweeten with honey to taste.
The same spices can be brewed at least twice.
