Chai Recipe Mix For Vata & Kapha

The Ayurveda Experience February 14, 2016

INGREDIENTS:

–  4 of cinnamon
–  2 of cardamom
–  
2 of fennel
–  
1 of ginger
–  
½ of clove
–  
½ of black pepper

 

Take 1 of this blend (¼ cup) to 6 cups of water. Boil down to 4 cups. (15-20 minutes on a low simmer. The longer you simmer, the stronger the tea). Strain out herbs.

If using tea, you may float 1-4 tea bags of your choice in the tea after boiling for up to 15 minutes.

For Vata: Add up to 2 cups milk/milk substitute and sweeten to taste. Keep warm to serve.

For Kapha: Add ½-1 cup milk/milk substitute and sweeten to taste with honey. Keep warm to serve.

Make 5-6 cups of chai. 
This mix makes enough for 9-10 quarts of tea. When sourcing your herbs, use cut and sifted or whole herbs/seeds for storage and boiling. This keeps the herbs fresh while storing and makes the best tasting cup of tea.
