Greetings Ecotopiians! Today I am writing to share my favorite chai recipe made with Blue Lotus Chai, an organic instant chai mix we sell at Ecotopiia. Blue Lotus Chai’s Traditional Masala Chai is a purely brewed black tea~naturally flash dried into a powder and blended with six organic spices combining to make a perfectly spicy & full-bodied chai. This recipe is convenient because there is no steeping or straining necessary! (the water-soluble mixture blends into hot or cold liquid) ‘Masala Chai’ is a tradition inherited from India~ the blending of spices with tea and hot milk. I love this chai mix because you can easily enjoy one scoop (equivalent to 1/4 tsp) in 1 (8 oz) cup of hot water adding your sweetener or milk of choice ~ or you can choose to spice things up 😉 I have been experimenting in the kitchen to perfect my daily chai ritual. Here is my favorite recipe.
Ingredients: Blue Lotus Chai Traditional Masala Chai, Organic Vanilla, Cinnamon, Almond/Coconut Milk, Raw Honey, Black Tea
Steps. For an even fuller bodied tea, I like to brew organic black tea to start. After shortly steeping, I stir in one scoop of Blue Lotus Chai. Then, I add a Tbsp of honey and stir until dissolved. I follow with a heaping sprinkling of cinnamon and a drop or two of vanilla before adding my almond milk to taste. This blend is the perfect combination of spicy~sweet~body and has quickly become a daily ritual of mine.
Details. One 3 oz Blue Lotus Chai tin comes with equipped with an adorable wooden spoon to perfectly measure your chai. Each tin makes 100 cups of chai! Blue Lotus Chai is vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and made using organic spices. Don’t think this Chai is just for tea~ Blue Lotus Chai mix is the perfect complement to your baked goods. Add them to your favorite muffins or pumpkin creations for an earthy~spicy upgrade.
Blue Lotus Chai has been a fun way for me to enjoy a daily homemade hot beverage without overspending at cafes for a less-healthy alternative. Let me know your favorite recipes! I would love to hear from you in the comments below.
