(Serves two people.)


(Serves two people.)

Dawn's Dew - 10 gr Ground Allspice - 1 Tea spoon Cracked Cardamom - 2 1/2 Tea spoon Ground Cinnamon - 1 Table spoon Ground Cloves - 1 Tea spoon

Ground Black Pepper - 1 Tea spoon Ground Nutmeg - 1/2 Tea spoon

Ground Ginger - 1 1/2 Tea spoon

Fennel Seed - 1 Tea spoon

Persian Saffron Nabat (Saffron Rock Candy) - 2 Sticks

Whole Milk - 2 Cups

100°C Water - 1 Cup


Mix all of the above spices with the tea and pour the dry mixture into a medium size sauce pan. (for better results use whole spices and slightly crush them using a mortar and pestle or a food processor. In case of nutmeg, it will need to be grated.)

Add the water and stir, add the milk and bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Stir in the two Nabat sticks until dissolved and simmer it down for another 10 minutes. Keep the temperature as low as possible so that the milk wont overflow.

Strain and serve immediately! This amazing Chai recipe will keep you warm on the chilly autumn and winter nights. Also, this is perfect for healing when feeling sick!
