Om!This recipe was first given to Brahma, the creator, and eventually handed down in an oral tradition to our present day. With the help of Sri Ganesha, I will attempt to put the recipe to writing. Forgive me if I make an error as I humbly transmit this valuable teaching.
2 cups of pure water.
1 cup milk (or plain EdenSoy milk)
1 Tbsp. Darjeeling tea.
1-2 inches Fresh ginger root.
1/2 tsp cardamon powder.
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder or chips (too taste)
1-2 pinches ground nutmeg.
1-3 tsp. turbinado sugar, agave, Sucanat, or local honey. (Stevia as sugar substitute)
First bring 2 cups of water to a boil along with the fresh ginger root (shredded),cardamon, and cinnamon powder. Immediately reduce heat to medium/low and simmer with the lid on for 3-5 minutes. Then remove the pot from the heat, add Darjeeling tea, and cover the pot. Let the tea steep for only 2 minutes (makes sure to not over steep the tea) and strain the tea decoction into a separate pot. Now add the milk of your choice, heat it up until it is good and warm, and sweeten the tea to your taste. Add the finishing touch of a pinch of nutmeg and you’re ready to drink.
Chai Guru Dev!
