Making real chai with real spices. We learned to do this from our daughter in law, who learned from her childhood best friend, whose mother’s family came from India. So, forget the chai that comes in tea bags filled with ground spices.
Whole cinnamon sticks, cardamon pods, cloves and more carry the real food power of their plant origins undiminished by grinding and oxidation. And they look beautiful and smell amazing when you make your chai.
