ROOIBOS GYPSY CHAI
With this frigid weather keeping us inside, it's nice to have something comforting to warm you up! I love chai, but don't always need the caffeine. This recipe has rooibos tea, which is a lovely red tea that is caffeine free and a great flavor that lends itself to chai. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
2 cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves
4 green cardamom pods
pinch of fennel seeds
1/8 tsp ginger powder or ½ tsp fresh chopped ginger
1 heaping tbs rooibos tea
4 cups boiling water
non-dairy milk to taste
raw honey, agave or organic sugar to taste
1) While bringing water to a boil, using mortar and pestle, grind ingredients (from cinnamon stick-fennel seeds) to break into smaller pieces and release flavor.
2) Either using a French press or tea pot with a screen, add ground ingredients, ginger, along with rooibos tea & water. Allow to steep for 10 minutes.
3) warm your favorite milk with a ½ tsp of honey, agave, or sugar then add tea. My faves are almond milk and raw honey. It has become one of my favorite parts of the day :)
