I’ve always been a huge fan of a delicious chai tea and often lovingly refer to it as ‘Christmas-in-a-cup’. With it’s delicious and spicy array of Indian spices, it’s sure to warm your belly and spirits. I’ve had the luck to work with the immensely talented photographer, Jasper Johal, for years now. He hails from India and knows how to make a mean cup of chai tea that greets me every time we do a shoot. He shared his recipe with me but laughed when I asked for measurements saying, ‘Indians don’t measure— just taste’! So, gather up the ingredients, follow what I have below and alter to your taste. If you struggle with finding the ingredients these all come in bulk at your local Indian market or you can always order online.
If you’re looking to do a bit more than warm your belly, try my holiday cocktail version—Chai-tini! Careful, these little gems go down easy so watch that mistletoe and have a lovely holiday!
