Chai Tea Recipes & All Things Chai!

Updated: 3 days ago



It's chai tea season! Well, for me it's always chai tea time but there's something special about the aroma of freshly steeped chai in the season of Autumn. I love the spiced taste and smell of chai tea in my cup, but there are other ways in which I like to enjoy the spiced beverage. In this post, I share a chai tea concentrate recipe that I found in Real Simple Magazine back in January 2018, 2 chai tea recipes from fellow tea bloggers that I love, and 3 chai tea scented products that I enjoy.

CONCENTRATE TO SAVE TIME


Chai is an Indian tea that combines spices such as cardamom, ginger, and cinnamon with Assam or black tea. Milk can be added as well to bring out the flavors of the spices and of the tea. Since brewing is required, chai is not a "grab and go" type of tea. If you want to ensure that chai tea is readily available any time you desire, then the best bet is to make a chai tea concentrate. A good chai tea concentrate will give you the strong spiced flavors of chai tea while saving you the time it takes to brew the ingredients that create the beverage.



In Real Simple Magazine January 2018 on page 123 there was a rich and delicious chai tea concentrate recipe that I shared on Tea End Blog. Check out my blog post featuring Real Simple Magazine's Chai Tea Concentrate.



SPICING UP THE BLOGS


It is known that I truly enjoy the work that my fellow tea blogger LuAnn Pannunzio does on her blog The Cup of Life. She always has interesting tea reviews, topics, interviews, and recipes that are worth notating and trying. On September 21st, right in the nick-of-time to welcome Autumn, she graced us with a blog post entitled Homemade Masala Chai; a chai tea recipe that only takes 15 minutes to cook a-top your stove. Check out this recipe and see how delicious it is!


There's an Authentic Homemade Indian Chai recipe featured on Foodess that only takes 5 minutes to prepare and it looks so delicious that I can smell the aroma through the computer screen! Check out the full recipe on Foodess.



CHAI THINGS THAT I LOVE


1) Chai Tea Premium Frangrance Oil, 10 ml - $4.75 | 2) WoodWick. Cinnamon Chai, 3.4 oz. Scented Candle - $16.45 | 3) Sencha Naturals Bombay Chai Green Tea Mints, 1.2 oz. - $3.95 | 4) Burt's Bees Chai Tea Lip Balm, 0.15 oz. - $5.50


Autumn is my favorite season so I actually celebrate its beginning in multiple ways. One way is overindulging in the scents familiar to fall. I like to diffuse chai tea oil or burn chai tea candles to infuse my living spaces with the scent of the season.


On a trip in South Carolina, I visited a quaint Tea Shop that sold green tea mints in chai flavor; I have been hooked ever since and now, these are the only mints I purchase.


In cooler weather, my lips tend to become more dry but with Burt's Bees Chai Tea Lip Balm I am able to naturally nurture my lips while enjoying the scent of chai.


TRADING COFFEE FOR CHAI


A lot of avid coffee drinkers who want to have a tea experience usually start with chai. Since chai is a strong beverage made with spices and black tea it usually satisfies coffee drinker's need for a heavy mouth feel during their sipping experiences. Amora Coffee, a company that delivers premium coffee right to your doorstep started to include quality tea in their routes in 2015. Amora was kind enough to let me taste 3 of their teas and one was a delicious and convenient chai in sachets. We thank you, Amora, for also showing the love to us tea sipping bookworms!




I hope you have plenty of opportunities to enjoy chai tea this season and if you don't, it really is no problem because chai tea is delicious year round!
