    Chai recipes

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    In my quest to limit my coffee consumption, i am looking for chai recipes as i like chai. i can drink it without milk or sweetener so i was wondering if anyone has any recipes? i am also thinking of making chai with broth to drink as i tried some with a dandelion chai tea bag the other night and it had potential.

    By definition, chai contains a milk of some sort. Also, chai broth is chai. It's like pho not chai.

    No milk or sweetener means you just want a flavored tea, of which there is plethora.

    In any case, you can make chai with any ratio of spices you want. Do a google search to find the most common ones.

    I make my own by adding 1-2 T of ginger because I like it spicy, a tsp of whole cloves, a few peppercorns, 5 or so cardamom pods, and a cinnamon stick to about a quart of water and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Bring to a boil, turn off and add your black tea. Double the tea to make a concentrate. Don't try to steep longer, as it will just get bitter. Add coconut milk, milk, almond milk, whatever and honey or other sugar to taste. Frankly, the sugar enhances the spices for a better tasting drink. It doesn't have to be a lot.

    i know chai has milk but i can only do so much dairy and i'd rather put it in my coffee. i have some chai spices in some broth as i type as i had a pot on the stove and decided to experiment. i always used to put honey in my chai till i started putting liquorice with it.

    I have recipes that use chai in them. Is that something you'd be interested in?
