I was recently given recipes for various iced chai to make but felt that steeping black tea for as long as suggested made the tea bitter.
I like my recipe below and have tested it favourably at events that I do.
The fruit teas make a great substitute to fruit juices packed with sugar.
Recipe works best with Assam Mint, Rooibos Spearmint, or caffeine free fruit teas
Steep caffeinated teas for 5 to 7 minutes. Caffeine free teas can be steeped overnight and extra sugar brings out the flavour of the rich spices.
Add fresh mint leaves, lemon or ginger for added enriched flavours.
If you don’t add cream, this keeps in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.
Add cream or ice cream only when ready to serve.
Note: If you are diabetic, please do not add the unrefined sugar or the vanilla ice-cream. Stick to full fat cream and stevia or pure monk sugar.
