As Winter is approaching, I can't help but think about a gorgeous, silky smooth Chai Tea that's brewed for comfort and fills the room with decadent aromas of cinnamon, cardamom, and star anise. Here's how to make the perfect cup using Buds & Beads Cuddle-me Chai.

How to make the perfect cup of Chai Tea.

Step 1: Add 1-2 teaspoons of Buds & Beads Cuddle-me Chai Tea to 250ml (1 cup) of your desired milk. I prefer my Chai a little stronger so I go for 2-3 teaspoons!

Step 2: Gently simmer for 10 - 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to boil the milk or over steep the brew as this will alter the flavour and make the tea slightly bitter. You will also loose all the goodness of the Chai blend - refer to my previous blog Have You Ever Tried a Chai Tea That's as Good as a Cuddle?

Step 3: Take in the gorgeous aromas of the Chai blend - cardamom, cinnamon, and star anise – wow!

Step 4: Pour the Chai milk through a tea strainer into your favourite mug and voila it’s that easy!


Hint: I add a half a teaspoon of honey for that extra comforting flavour. Enjoy!

Buds & Beads Cuddle-me Chai is a blend of black tea, cardamom, ginger, black peppercorns, bay leaves, cinnamon, fennel seeds and star anise.
