"chai chai garam chai"

Sound familiar? This is the call of the chai wahallas on the streets and trains of India. They carry around pots of chai, made over an open fire in small stands, and serve it up fresh with sweets and local gossip. Every region and even most families have their own version of this essential drink. This one comes from a beautiful mama I was staying with in Bikaner, Rajasthan, with my own twist, of course!

Chamela Giri Winter Chai is a spicy and warm full bodied chai. In the tradition of Ayuvedic medicine this chai aids in digestion as well increasing immunity and circulation. Traditionally it is mixed with assam tea, milk and sugar. My family likes it with rooibus, almond milk and honey. Yerba mate is amazing too!
