Let’s brew a perfect cup of Chai!
At The Chai Brewing Company, we believe that the journey to a perfect cup of Chai is a unique experience for each individual. To help you create a Chai that resonates with your taste buds, we've crafted a simple step-by-step method that you can tailor to your preferences.
Step 1: Boil Water to Begin
Begin your Chai adventure by bringing 2 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan. This is where the magic begins, as the water sets the foundation for the rich flavors that will soon grace your cup.
Step 2: Infuse the Aroma
Add 2-3 heaped teaspoons of our exquisite Chai blend to the simmering water. Allow it to brew over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. This crucial step extracts the aromatic spices and complex flavors that make Chai a beloved classic.
Step 3: The Milk Transformation
Now, it's time to infuse your Chai with the comforting creaminess of milk. For those who prefer the classic touch, add 1/3 cup of regular milk. If you're embracing a plant-based lifestyle, choose your favorite nut milk for a unique twist. Bring the Chai to a gentle boil, marrying the flavors of the spices and milk.
Step 4: Customization Unleashed
Your Chai, your rules! Here's where you get to customize your cup to perfection. Whether you crave a touch of sweetness or prefer the pure essence of the spices, we've got you covered.
Option 1: Street-Style Classic
For the traditionalists, add sugar and 1/3 cup of milk to your brew. Let the mixture simmer on medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Once the flavors meld, strain the Chai and savor its familiar, delightful taste.
Option 2: Nourishing Nut Milk & Sweetener
For those seeking a healthier touch, introduce 1/3 cup of your selected nut milk. Turn off the heat before the milk begins to boil. Let it steep for 2 minutes, then strain. Enhance the flavor with your preferred natural sweetener – we recommend honey or jaggery for a delectable twist.
Option 3: Embrace the Essence
If you're captivated by the pure essence of Chai, omit the milk and sugar. Add 1 heaped teaspoons of Chai, then switch off the heat. Allow the brew to steep for 3-4 minutes, then strain. Feel free to introduce a touch of sweetness if your heart desires.
Remember, Chai is an experience that's as diverse as you are. These recommendations are mere stepping stones to your perfect cup. So, whether you choose to embrace tradition or embark on an innovative Chai journey, always relish in the fact that your Chai is crafted uniquely by you.
