DO WHAT MAKES YOUR SOUL SHINE!

Red Chai (Tea)

Posted by Smita Kishore on

As the weather begins to cool and the leaves rustle in the wind, there's nothing like cozying up with a soothing cup of tea to unwind at the end of the day. Here's my favorite caffeine-free tea recipe for the Fall, filled with spices that will warm you from the inside out. I like to premix a large batch so I can easily make it after a long day of work. This recipe will last you well beyond the winter! Enjoy :) 

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup loose leaf Organic Rooibos Tea 
  • 2 large Cinnamon Sticks
  • 3 tbsp Fennel Seeds
  • 2 tbsp whole Cloves
  • 2-3 tbsp Cardamom Pods 
  • 2 whole Star Anise 

Instructions: 

  • Break up the cinnamon sticks into smaller pieces with your hands.
  • Use a mortar and pestle to lightly crush the remaining spices into small pieces. 
  • Add the tea leaves and mix well. 
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Brewing: When ready for a delicious cup of tea, bring a cup of water to a boil and remove from heat. Add in 1-2 tsp (less for lighter tea, more for stronger) of the tea mixture and cover for 5-7 minutes. Strain and enjoy!
