Tip from Chantal:
Nice to drink hot, but also very tasty cooled with a few ice cubes! "Chai" means tea in most Asian countries butin India it is a spiced tea with milk. It used to be made for Indian princes. There is no set recipe for "Chai", every family makes it his own recipe.I would say let your own taste and imagination run free. The above mentioned herbs are the fixed values in this delightfulIndian herbal tea with matcha as variation. Enjoy!
