Our Milky Chai recipe will fill your home with warmth and holiday cheer with a delightful medley of aromas drifting from your kitchen pot. This awesome recipe has a multitude of contributors who have assisted in its perfection! (Thank you Sherry, Hope & Margaret)
• 15 grams (3 TBSP) loose YAO Masala Chai
• 2 cups water
• 2 cups Califia Unsweetened Almond Milk Creamer OR 2 cups Califia Vanilla Almond Milk Creamer (this a slightly sweeter version that does not require additional sugar)
• 3-5 pieces of freshly sliced ginger, or 1-2 TBSP freshly grated ginger
Add all ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium/high heat. Stir, scraping the bottom of the pan to avoid scalding the almond milk. Once it reaches a boil, turn down the heat and continue to stir. Allow tea to simmer 3-5 minutes.
Increase the heat again and let the tea come to 1-2 more vigorous boils for approximately 2-3 minutes each time, reducing the heat and simmering/stirring after each boil. The color of the tea will turn to a rich dark brown. Strain carefully into a mug. Sweeten to taste with raw sugar, honey or coconut honey, then serve and enjoy! Yum!
