SATURDAY RITUALS – CHAI SPICED TEA

Chai tea by jingHow’s your weekend started? Did you wake up to snow like us? Of course, it all melted away in minutes but it was magical for a while there. I have been in an unusually early Christmas mood, after shooting some images for an exciting collaboration over the last couple of days. To calm back down to a normal November tempo, this morning was spent slowing down and enjoying some Chai spiced tea.  Chai tea by jingI love the amber colour and warming flavour, I usually blend my own but don’t always have time, so I thought I’d give this version by Jing a try.  I have actually had it sitting on the counter for weeks! After grabbing this golden raisin-studded pastry in the farm shop this morning, I had a light bulb moment and remembered the packet of chai spiced tea sitting there. A celebration of all things amber and warming ensued.Chai tea by jingA calmness settled as I fully committed to this weekend ritual and forgot everything for a few moments, honey and star anise make for a wonderful combo and the Ceylon woke me up from my festive daze. You can find links to some of my favourite recipes using Chai spices here. I have been obsessed with it for quite some time! Chai tea by jingDo you have any weekend rituals? xChai tea by jing

  • Oh I love chai tea! And I love that little glass tea infuser as well! I might have to add that to my Christmas wishlist. Also, after reading your post, I had to go and make myself some camomile and spiced apple tea – I know it’s not the same but it made me crave nice tea ;) x
