Here is today's blend for anyone that just so happens, or merely to remind myself someday!
1 rose hips
1 earl grey
1/4 orange zest
1 pod cardamom (crushed)
1-2 dash bitters
1 sliver crystal ginger
Steep in 2-3 cups clear water brought to boil then removed for a minute or so from flame. Just enough to drop back on "fury" of boil! :)
I steep until cooled significantly, then press with my most excellent french press. I usually add honey as a sweetener and have even today used some special honey I bought. Raspberry honey! Yummmmy!
In a shaker I add ice 2/3 tea, a shot of french vanilla creamer and fill with milk, cover and shake, pour into a BIG tall glass and step out to the deck with a fantastic chai! MMMMMMM.....
Makes enough for several glasses, just save in fridge for next day! Keeps fairly well for 1-2 days. But do not add cream or milk until ready to serve.
