Soothe Your Soul with a Rooibos Chai

by lydia on April 14, 2014

Soothe your soul, while enjoying the spicy warmth of a Rooibos Chai. Rooibos is a naturally caffeine free red tea originally from South Africa.  Read more about Rooibos Tea here. No known side effects safe for people of all ages. Some studies now show that rooibos tea protects against cancer. That’s reason enough for me to drink up!

Indian masala tea with spices

This recipe is super easy and great for kids too! Making your own at home saves a ton of money and ensures you are getting the healthiest chai possible. I enjoy this Rooibos Chai after dinner as a way to peel away from distractions and relax. It’s very soothing and offers a spicy sweetness that can replace a dessert.

I buy most all of my herbs, teas and some of my spices from Mountain Rose Herbs. I love their prices and quality. I also like Frontier and get some things from my local health food store to try before I buy in bulk.

I would love to try this tea! However, I am probably the only one in my house who will drink it and a quart seems like a lot. This may sound dumb, but does this store well in the fridge, or should I scale the recipe to what I can drink in one sitting?

Are the spices whole or ground?

Heather I used ground spices to make it easier -but you could also crush the whole spices too.
