I’ve always loved chai tea, especially in the winter when a spicy, warming beverage is just what the doctor ordered. But good chai tea (the loose kind) is pricey. Moreover, I don’t love some of the brands that I’ve tried recently because they’re too weak. So, because a community member requested it, I thought it was time to get on and create a good DIY Chai Tea.
Chai tea originally hails from India, but it’s become popular globally because of its complex spicy flavor, and the health benefits of the different spices used. Ayurvedic medicine is a big proponent of these spices, adding them to many foods. However, I think that chai spices are particularly delicious in a warm tea.
I have added a special ingredient: dandelion root. It’s not only the root you need to aid your liver in cleansing and detoxing, but it also has a lovely nutty flavor.
