We’ve got a little something for you... Yay chai!

Let's talk about chai...

Not only is it the unofficially-official drink of India, it's D-E-A-Licious! So much so, we named one of our socks after it. You see, chai isn't just about caffeinating - it's a way of life.

And just because we love you, we've sent you over how we make chai sky-high in the Himalayas. The processes on the good ol' internet may vary, but this is how we roll up in our village.

CHAI INSTRUCTIONS


Makes 4 cups

In a pot:

  • Put in 2 cups of water
  • 2 Tablespoons of chai tea leaves
  • Sugar to taste; 2 Tablespoons recommended

Indian Chai is traditionally sweet.

Bring to a boil.

After it has boiled, lower it to a simmer. Add:

  • 2 Cups of milk
  • 1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/8 a teaspoon of ginger
  • 6 Crushed cardamom seeds (put them in with their cracked shells)

Return to a boil.

Watch it very closely. When it looks like it's about to over boil (and not a moment sooner!) remove from the heat. This is the secret of authentic chai.

Strain and serve.

Enjoy!
