Chai the Spice Tea of Indiaby Diana Rosen
Synopses & Reviews
Discover the sumptuous flavors, rich traditions, and healing powers of chai!
Spirited blends of spices such as anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves transform black tea into the rich, full-bodied elixir that has been enjoyed in India for centuries. As a warm, creamy treat with milk and honey or chilled as a summer cooler, healthful chai is the perfect beverage for any occasion.
In Chai you'll find:
— 22 recipes for chai spice blends and variations from chai latt, to iced herbal chai
— Stories of the chai experience from India and throughout the world
— Recipes for chai scones, cookies, cakes, and more
— Ayurvedic health benefits of chai spices
This flavorful combination of black tea and rich spices is now the up-and-coming
beverage trend. Rosen uncovers its history along with recipes for making and cooking with chai and serving suggestions for tea celebrations. Readers will find variations like herbal chai, iced chai, and chai cappuccino, plus recipes for masala cake, cardamom cookies, and chai scones.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 121-122) and index.
