This chai tea recipe is from Kerala, India (my next stop after Coimbatore), and is called Sulaimani Chai. It’s super easy, perfect hot or cold, and it’s good for all seasons (so you can use this during the holidays, too)! Let’s get started. 

 

chai tea spices

 

You will need:

 

1 tbsp. Go Chai

½ tsp. fresh grated ginger

½ tsp. fresh lemon juice

1 tsp. coconut nectar or honey (or to taste)

 

Prepare the Go Chai according to the instructions. Towards the end of the simmer, add in the ginger, allow it to steep, and strain. Add in the lemon and sweetener, and enjoy!
