It's feeling rather frosty here in sunny Queensland. This morning I woke up with what felt like snow biting my nose, not at all impressed my wake up call was what seemed like the next world war breaking out in the kid's bedroom. Someone stole someone's Lego and it all went downhill from there.
My trusty weather app provides no comfort or hope for warmth, proclaiming it is currently 8 degrees outside. Now for those if you in more southerly states, you may be smirking at my Queensland softness right now, so believe me it felt like -5 degrees outside.
My morning tells me it's time to head down to the Tielka warehouse and get some business action happening but the distinct lack of heating screams "Stay away!!! For the love of your freezing toes, brew some tea, take some pretty pics, post them pics on Instagram and sit on the couch!!!". So this is my blessed attempt to make my morning productive while enjoying the heating of our blissfully warm Queenslander.
The productiveness of this morning's cold-avoidance comes in the form of my old time favourite chai recipe and I thus name it "Warm Winter Chai"! It's simple, delicious and naturally only tastes this good when you brew it with Tielka's South Cloud Chai. Here it is:
Warm Winter Chai(makes 300ml)
1 tbspn (6gm approx) South Cloud Chai
1 tspn honey
1 tiny pinch (1.5gm approx) freshly grated ginger
160ml boiling water
150ml frothed milk
1. Scoop South Cloud Chai into brewing vessel (teapot / jug with lid)
2. Add fresh ginger
3. Pour boiling water over chai, cover
4. Brew for 3-4 min
5. Heat and froth milk
6. Measure honey into serving jug
7. Strain chai brew into serving jug, mix with honey
8. Pour over frothed milk
9. Serve and enjoy!
