It’s time for an amazing home-cooked Indian meal.  The menu includes paneer saag, steamed Basmati rice, raita, naan, chana masala, butter chicken, and vegetable curry.  There is only one thing missing!  Chai Tea!  Add my Signature Chai Tea to your menu! And if all else fails, ‘A cup of tea makes everything better.’

Every hostess wants her guests to feel welcome and be well-fed.  It would be her worst nightmare for one of her guests to get sick from one of her meals!  Heartburn!  Food poisoning!  Food poisoning is the worst!  This Signature Chai Tea promotes digestion, boosts the immune system, and battles inflammation.  And its so easy to make!

Because of the amazing spices that make up Chai Tea, its numerous benefits to your health make it a delight to drink.  Cardamom also makes a lovely tea.  You can even make ginger into a tea.

Let’s get started.  Peel your ginger, and then slice.  I just peeled mine with a carrot peeler.  Or it is a potato peeler?
