Welcome to ‘STORIES FROM A WILD KITCHEN’ with Jess & Kitty
‘Life is like a cup of tea, it’s all in how you make it.’
100g or heaped cup Rooibos Tea
thumb size piece fresh ginger
tbsp star anise
tbsp cardamom pods
tbsp fennel seeds
tbsp mixed spices- nutmeg/cinnamon/vanilla powder
Pestle and mortar the whole seeds, barks and spices. Grate the ginger and mix with the rooibos. Mix all together with a cup of hot water to activate the spices. If you like more of one spice or not so keen on another, just play around and find the ratios that suit your tastes 🙂 Put in a glass jar and store in the fridge.
Cup of Chai Time!
Boil up a water with a tablespoon or two of the mix and then add a teaspoon of honey and some milk of your choice. Pour through a tea strainer into your cup and sit back and enjoy a hug in a mug!
