If you like spicy … you will love this drink! I doubled up on the turmeric since I am dealing with inflammation in my frozen shoulder and I am looking for relief! Not sure if this helped since I had my first physical therapy yesterday and well,,,, I expected to be sore.
This is the first Chai I have ever made and I did turn away far too long from the stove and the brew bubbled over and made a terrible mess. Lesson learned —> keep an eye on the pot! I took the recipe from the Sipology by Steeped Tea catalog but made less and substituted different teas.
Spicy Turmeric Chai
1 1/2 tsp Golden Vanilla Latte
1 1/2 tsp Turmeric ‘N Spice Black Tea
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup milk or milk substitute (I used soymilk)
1/2 cup soymilk for froth – added to the top
The first step is to add the 1 1/2 cups of water and the Golden Vanilla Latte to your saucepan on the stove. Turn up the heat and bring to a boil; then simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the Turmeric ‘N Spice black tea and continue to simmer 2 more minutes. Add the 1/2 cup milk, bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
Remember to keep an eye on the pot so it doesn’t boil over!
Golden Vanilla Latte & water
Turmeric ‘N Spice black tea added
Finished masterpiece – Spicy & Delicious
Strain the tea so as to remove all the loose leaf tea once done simmering. Add the frothed milk (Milk Frother can be found here)
Enjoy your Spicy Drink!!
