Almost Oprah Chai

Inspired by the newly-released Oprah Chai, my hot and spicy Almost Oprah version makes a wonderful morning pick me up or a welcome afternoon treat (minus the extreme packaging!)

If you haven’t tried making your own chai, it’s as simple as assembling the ingredients, but a good loose leaf tea strainer or a pot with one built-in is also key. These ingredients should be pretty easy to find in bulk in most health food stores, but if you don’t have a good local option nearby, Mountain Rose Herbs is a wonderful online source.

Ingredients

Blend all ingredients and store in a glass jar for up to 6 months.

To brew:  place 1 tablespoon of chai per cup of water into a teapot with a built-in strainer (a must have for all tea lovers!).   Either heat water separately to boiling or heat your teapot on a medium-high stove just until water comes to a simmer before you turn it down to low heat.

If you’ve separately heated the water, pour it into your teapot and steep chai for 5-10 minutes.  If you’re heated your chai on the stove top, steep for 2-5 minutes longer, depending on how strong you like it.

Enjoy your chai with ¼-½ cup warm rice, almond or dairy milk and a dash of stevia for a bit of sweetness.
