This is a caffeine-free alternative to the masala chai. We dropped the tea-base and in its place, is roasted chicory-root. Chicory is often used as a coffee substitute due to its flavour and strength to cut through milk. Naturally, it also complements spices well with its light licorice-like sweetness. Organic rooibos is also included in this blend for an added tang and a further boost to the immune system.
1. Steep 1tbs/7.5g of chicory "chai" in 150ml 90-100C water for 1:00
2. Add 150ml steamed milk and steep for further 1:00
3. Strain, add 1.5tbs honey and enjoy
