Because chai takes about an hour of simmering I love making chai tea on the wood stove. Very energy efficient!
For those of you without a wood stove you might prefer using a crock pot for this chai. Simply put all the ingredients in a crock pot and leave it on low overnight. You’ll wake to the spicy warm smells of chai tea.
What you’ll need…
10-15 small slices astragalus root
2 tablespoons of codonopsis root
2 tablespoons of ginger root
2 tablespoons dried orange peel
1 tablespoon of cinnamon chips
1 teaspoon of peppercorns
1-2 cardamom pods
3-5 allspice berries
1/4 teaspoon of cloves (about 3-5 cloves)
1 and 1/2 quarts of water
Place all the ingredients in a pan.
Bring to a boil.
Simmer for one hour.
Add milk and honey if desired.
