Red Chai

Beautiful. Brew up a batch for friends. I’ve been wanting a caffeine-free chai for so long. Rooibos (red bush) tea makes a lovely alternative. It’s also fine for children and a lovely dessert tea. Perfect served with fruit toast and Kere’s bliss balls. Dedicated to my sis.

Chai tea brings peace.

1 stick cinnamon
12 sticks of cloves (more if desired)
6 cardamon pods
1/4 inch fresh ginger (peeled)
2 tablespoons fair-trade rooibos (red bush) tea or 4 bags, opened up and added
7 cups water
ground pepper (optional)

AND
1 cup soymilk (I prefer Soymilky)
2-5 tablespoons sugar (I prefer 2, but chai is supposed to be served super-sweet)

INSTRUCTIONS

In a pot on the stove, boil cinnamon, cloves, cardamon, ginger, tea and water. Add pepper if desired. Boil for 5 minutes then stand for 10. Add soymilk and sugar. Strain into teacups to serve.
