🍵 Shoutout to chai tea!!
Especially my homemade chai! I've always wished I used the spices I've got regularly, I figured it would be with cooking but hey, I'm not complaining!
Kinda funny story how I got into making my own...
🤱 My wife Jess is breastfeeding, and avoiding caffeine, but as I'm someone that loves cooking and finds camomile and green tea boring after a while, I started buying her chai. It was really yummy, but expensive!! So I started working on my own recipe, which is down below, for her.
And it went down a treat!!! Well, up until the evening she had gastro, and was pretty sick. You know when you get rotten drunk and have a baaaad night with your head slumped over the porcelain thrown, and can't stand to drink anymore whatever you'd been drinking that night? 🤢
Well, Jess + chai + gastro = Jess doesn't like chai anymore. 😩
There's a happy ending though! My recipe makes four cups, which is exactly how many I want in the evening. Now that Jess doesn't drink it, I only have to make one batch each evening. Haha, I didn't say it wasnt a greedy self centred happy ending, it totally is! 🤣
Recipe* (makes 4 cups):
1x small bay leaf
5x cloves, crushed
1&1/2 star anise, crushed
2x cinnamon sticks, torn apart by hand (don't grind them and don't use cinnamon powder, it tastes gross and gums up your sieve)
4x teaspoons black tea leaf
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1x teaspoon allspice
1x litre water (or, if you're from Liberia or Myanmar, 34 ounces 🤣)
*If you've got your own recipe, please let me know!!!
