This morning I skipped breakfast and made instead the “Mother of all Chai”, my special Vegan Chai recipe.
I grated fresh ginger root, grated fresh turmeric root, added five cinnamon sticks (maybe more) and a lot of whole black peppers as well as lot of Fennel seeds, Anise seeds, and Ajwain seeds. Not stopping there, I added many whole Cloves and Cardamom seeds.
The I put the mix in a large pot of water and brought the pot to a boil.
After letting it simmer on low for ten minutes, I added loose black Darjeeling tea to the mix and let it simmer for 5 more minutes.
Using a strainer to pour the liquid in my Chai mug, I added Soy milk and then sweetened the mixture with stevia.
Finally, I sat down and sipped the Chai slowly and watched as this magical potion gently energized me and made me smile and sing.
