Healing Ginger Chai


12 cardamom pods

1 tsp coriander seeds

1 tsp fennel seeds

1 tsp grated nutmeg (fresh is best)

3 cinnamon sticks

8 cloves

2 star anise

1 tsp black peppercorns

2 tb organic black tea leaves

2tb fresh ginger, thinly sliced

1 tb raw honey

Plant mylk to serve (I love coconut or hemp seed, but you can use any mylk you like)


  1. Grind all spices in a mortar and pestle to release the flavour (around 2 minutes).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the spices with the tea leaves and fresh ginger.
  3. Add honey and stir mixture until all ingredients are evenly coated.
  4. Place mixture in a sterilized jar and store in the fridge for up to 6 weeks.
  5. To make the chai, add 1 tsp of the spice mix per cup to a tea pot. Add enough boiling water to cover the spices and allow to steep for a minute or two.
  6. Pour in enough warm mylk for each person.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
