In the Reboot Kitchen: Homemade Chai Tea

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

I love this tea and find it a wonderful winter warmer! The first time I made it from scratch I was in the home of an Indian family whom I had met through my work in London and I fell in love. They offered me tea and asked if I was okay to have an Indian tea, ‘of course I was happy to have what they were having’ but when the tea maker didn’t come back for half an hour I was curious as to what on earth he had been up to. I then learn they didn’t just pour hot water onto a bag and stir in milk! He was off in the kitchen grating and grinding the spices for the chai tea and boy was it GOOD. So here it is! I hope you enjoy this tea as much as I do!
