I always find the process of making myself a chai a ritual. Slowly heating the milk while the spices infuses their flavours, the aromatic smell engulfs the room. Waiting patiently for the milk to boil is a process, a journey that a good chai takes you on. But we don’t always have the time or access to stovetops and pots. This is where the cheats chai is the perfect solution. With the assistance of a microwave and cup you can make the perfect chai anywhere, anytime!
Directions for the Cheats Chai
- Pour a cup of milk (we suggest soy milk as it gives chai tea an organic nutty flavour)
- Spoon in 1-2 teaspoons of chai
- Heat in the microwave for 2 minutes then let sit for a further minute
- Strain through a tea strainer and enjoy your delicious Cheats Chai.
Tip: You can add a spoon full of honey for extra sweetness or grate some fresh nutmeg on top for a delicious winter warming chai
