In this easy to make chai recipe I share my favourite herbs to add to your chai. Did you know that all these herbs are carminatives? This means they aid in digestion and keeping the digestive tract healthy. Enjoying a cup of chai in the morning is one of my favourite rituals and it's a great way to wake up your digestive system! So try out this authentic chai recipe to start your morning right.
To make the chai, fill up a cup over halfway with water, and then add milk on top. Pour the mixture into a pot. In a mortar and pestle, crush up some black pepper, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon. Throw the crushed herbs into the pot with the mixture. Add a pinch of dried holy basil, and then some fresh ginger. Turn on the stove, and when the chai is about to boil, add some black tea. Turn the stove down and then back up to a boil. Repeat this several times. Once it is done, strain it and drink it.
