Chai Tea made from scratch

 Chai tea contains ingredients to nourish every organ in your body such as brain, intestines, stomach, liver, adrenals, lungs and the pancreas.  Nothing  compares to a homemade chai tea. My favourite recipe is below. All ingredients are easily accessible from a local supermarket or an Indian or Asian store. Organic ingredients are the best.


Licorice root ground –  20g, Cardamon pods –  20g, Cinnamon stick-  20g, Aniseeds (optional) – 10g, Black pepper – 10g, Cloves -10g. Fresh chopped ginger to taste.
