shyam singh, chai lao

Tea in bed has to be one of the most decadent ways I can think of to start the day. Hell, just having someone else make a cup of chai is divine. But having it brought to bed while you lie in for just five minutes more tops my list of life’s little pleasures.

And there is no tea that quite compares to Parsi Chai…

Bring the water to a rolling boil.
Add in your favourite black tea leaves. One per cup, plus one for the pot.
Put in a large handful of phudina (mint leaves).
For real flavour add in some lilychai (lemongrass leaves).
Let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Prepare your cup with raw brown sugar (add sugar, I beg of you).
Pour in the tea.
Add a dash of milk.
Stir. Drink. Aahhh! Bliss.

Gotta go, my chai is getting cold. Dee x
PS: Thanks husby. Xoxo
