Chai Tea Concentrate

This recipe is inspired by this recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks. She is my hero, role model, and imaginary mentor in all things food blogging. Here is my take on her recipe!


4 1/2 c. water
1 stick cinnamon
1 tbsp. ginger
7 cardamom pods
15 whole cloves
1/4 tsp. freshly cracked pepper
zest of 1 orange
10 tsp. loose jasmine tea
2/3 c. organic molasses
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. vanilla


Bring water to a boil. Add spices and tea. Remove from heat and allow to steep for 30 minutes. Add molasses, honey, and vanilla. Whisk, cool, and refrigerate.

To serve, combine 1/4 c. chai tea concentrate with 1 c. milk (I use almond milk). Heat for 3 minutes, and grate fresh nutmeg on top. You could even get super fancy and dollop fresh whipped cream. It's heavenly.

  1. Sounds great - next time you're in Midlothian, you'll have to make a cup for me to try!
