Is it Chai Time?

Is it Chai Time?

Who doesn’t love Chai? This sweet and spicy cup of joy is one of the joys we can all share – we especially love it in Winter time.

We have a great recipe which we wanted to share with you – so pop on your favourite Cream Collection Lifestyle apron, and get stewing – we hope you enjoy it.

Takes approximately 20 minutes as it has to stew. 


  • 7 Green Cardamon Pods
  • 4 Whole cloves
  • 2 Star Anise (optional but we love it!)
  • 237 ml of water
  • 3 slivers of fresh ginger or you can use powder (or from a jar – for us the more the better!)
  • 40 ml Black loose leaf tea or 1-2 bags.
  • One cup of your milk of choice – cow or plant based.
  • Maple sugar or honey or sugar to taste.  We prefer the malty flavour of the maple syrup – but whatever floats your boat!

Another tip is to pop in a few black peppercorns – you will really love the bite this adds to the spice mix.


Put all of the ingredients into a pot and simmer.

Then serve when it is stewed to the strength you prefer. Don't forget that the longer it stews the stronger it will become. 

Please tell us if you try our recipe and tag us on Instagram at @cream_collection_lifestyle – we really want to hear from you – also share your tips if you know any other chai secrets that you can share with us too!
