Dr. Smith's Chai Deluxe Notes

I've developed Chai Tea recipes for quite a while and have a few varieties. Here's the original.

Ingredients
Serves / Yields

One Quart

Preparation Instructions

Bring water to near boil and let all the spices steep for ten minutes covered.

Add soy milk while still warm.

Add grated nutmeg and honey (or maple syrup) to taste.

Helpful Hints

You can experiment with the amounts of spices.

The tea has a warming affect, and can be served hot, medium, or chilled.

I only use the best spices (which is why I shop at The Spice House), and organic everything when possible.

I make my own soy milk at home from organic beans, organic honey, organic ginger, etc. Important! Use only filtered water!

I noticed that there is no actual tea in this recipe "Chai" does mean tea in hindi (language spoken in India)

This recipe should be called "masala" (spices) as that is what is in this recipe.
