I decided to finish off my last little bit of Thai Chai in style – by making it traditional-style like I’ve been saying I will for months.

I used this recipe on the website www.chai-wallah.com

In a pot bring to the boil 1 cup milk and one cup water.
Add 2 tsp of the chai/tea mix to the boiling liquid.
Add 2 1/2 to 3 tsp of sugar or sweetener of choice.
Simmer for two minutes and strain through a fine tea strainer.

I used skim milk so technically it isn’t old-school chai – but then lemongrass and coconut aren’t your standard chai ingredients anyway. I used wildflower honey as a sweetener.

It’s a little bit messy and more time-consuming than just brewing it in a cup with hot water but the results were worth it. It tasted like I’d added pure coconut milk to the tea – it was just sweet enough and the coconut flavour in particular was really prominent. It was smooth and creamy-tasting without the slightest hint of astringency. I’m so going to have to try other chais this way.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
