Popping up here to offer you tea, through recipes instead of actually serving it. I promise for the time it takes to wait in line or sit in the drive thru, you can make your own chai, tweak it to how you like it and best of all experience some good medicine.

Recipe for Masala Chai

4 whole cloves

1/2 inch piece fresh ginger, that I’ve cut into thin slices

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

4 or 5 grinds of pepper

1 ½ teaspoon loose leaf black tea

1 ¾ cup water

½ teaspoon honey

¼ cup organic milk (whole milk, soy milk, oat milk, nut milk or coconut milk)

Combine spices together in a small saucepan and add 1 3/4 cup or 14 ounces water. Bring to a gentle boil over medium low heat covered with lid slightly open. Simmer 20 minutes. Turn off heat, add 1 1/2 teaspoon loose leaf black tea. Cover with the lid tight, steep 10 minutes. Strain. Pour tea back into saucepan. Add honey and milk. Bring back to simmer and allow film ot form on top. Stir before drinking.
