Homemade, Caffeine-Free Chai Tea
One of my favourite caffeinated beverages has got to be chai tea - especially an almond-milk chai latte. Unfortunately, the black tea in chai is pretty heavily caffeinated, and can affect my energy in a negative way.
Which is why I LOVE this recipe from Elana's Kitchen for a spicy, warming, caffeine-free chai.
Sip and enjoy!
- 6 cups water
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 4 cloves
- 1 inch ginger, sliced
- 8 pods cardamom
- 6 whole peppercorns
- 1 bag peppermint tea (or 1 tablespoon loose peppermint tea)
Combine all ingredients in a pot and place on stove over medium heat.
Bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer for 15 minutes.
Strain into mugs.
Serve piping hot with agave and almond milk (optional).
