How to make Authentic Masala Chai. The aromas from this brewing in your kitchen will transport you to the streets of India.

Made using 9 different spices, freshly ground, following our Mothers Original recipe. We still make it together in small batches.

If you’re not into milk , (or in a rush) and like natural herbal drinks why not try using our natural Chai masala mixed into a mug of boiling water, with a little grated fresh Tumeric (or ginger) and sweetener of your choice (Honey or Agave). let it stand for a 5-10 mins. Strain and drink.

Natural, pure, vegan and so good for you. Give it a go. (If you have one of those small teapots with its own little strainer compartment makes it even easier)
