  • Hi and welcome to Drinks Tube, I'm Becky, a YouTuber with a huge love of tea. You can

  • check out my channel Talk Becky Talk, that's gonna' be in the description box below.

  • Now today, I've got a really exciting tea recipe for you it's one of my favorites.

  • Spiced chai tea. It's sweet, it's warming, it's delicious. It's a little bit more exotic than your usual tea.

  • Legend has it, an Indian king actually created this in his quest for a healing beverage.

  • You can have it all day long and I love it. So to make my perfectly sweet and spicy chai

  • tea, here's what you need. Black loose leaf tea, cinnamon sticks, some nutmeg, ground

  • ginger, some cloves, milk, water and last but not least delicious honey. You can actually

  • use maple syrup or agave nectar. Okay, so now for the fun bit, actually making it. You're

  • gonna need a small saucepan and we're gonna mix the liquids first of all. So you're gonna

  • take six hundred milliliters of your milk and pour that in and then you're gonna' add

  • three hundred and fifty milliliters of water. This is gonna make the tea really nice and

  • light and milky. Next up, we're gonna' add two sticks of cinnamon. You're actually gonna'

  • break these up. I love this because it adds such a nice hum of spice and such a deliciously

  • strong flavour to your tea. Next we're gonna add some cloves, now these are gonna give

  • it a beautiful sweet but spiced peppery flavor. I love the smell of cloves so we're gonna

  • add four of these. Now next, we're gonna do one teaspoon of ground ginger, we're using

  • ground ginger because that's gonna allow the flavors to infuse really quickly

  • and this goes really well with the deeper flavors of that cinnamon and the cloves. Grate two

  • thirds of your whole nutmeg, this is really gonna' give it that warm, spicy aroma.

  • Now, this might actually take a while but it's worth it cause the flavour is gonna' be amazing.

  • Ok, I think that is about enough. Now, I'm gonna be using black loose leaf tea.

  • This is actually Assam and we wanna use a stronger tea because this has got so many flavors

  • And you want that strong flavor to come through. So I'm using four tablespoons of this.

  • You can adjust this is you want depending on how strong you want the tea to be. If you don't

  • have loose leaf tea, don't worry cause you can just wack in four English breakfast teabags,

  • you don't need to worry about cutting them up, that's gonna do the job just nicely.

  • Ok, now it's time to get this yummy mixture onto the heat. So we've just put this on to

  • a medium heat. You wanna give that a nice stir and then we want to wait until we can

  • see bubbles just coming around the edge, I don' want it to boil. Just to heat up nicely.

  • Ok, so when you start to see those bubbles round the edge, you're gonna turn that heat

  • right down and you're gonna simmer that for twelve minutes. That's really gonna help infuse

  • all of that flavour. Don't simmer it for more than twelve minutes otherwise the tannins

  • from the tea are gonna' be released and completely ruin the flavour, it will taste really bitter.

  • So twelve minutes and give it a nice stir. Ok so that's your twelve minutes. Now, I'm

  • gonna' strain this into a teapot. I'm actually using a funnel and a strainer but you can

  • use whatever you've got at home. Look at that, it smells amazing already. So, when that's

  • all strained, I'm gonna get rid of this. I've actually got a heat proof glass.

  • I'm gonna strain it again, just to make sure there are no small bits of tea in here. And

  • look at that, this is literally my favorite tea. There you have it, this looks amazing.

  • The smell is incredible. Moment of truth, let's try it. That is the best, all of the

  • spices coming through the peppered taste, the cinnamon, the cloves. That to me is perfect,

  • if you want it any sweeter though you can add a little bit of honey or you could add

  • some maple syrup, some agave nectar as well but I have to say, it might not have been

  • a healing remedy, it definitely would have got the king a lot of friends. Tea-licious!

  • Did you see what I did there? A bit cheesy, I know. This is so nice on a special occasion.

  • I actually like to have it everyday though because I'm so obsessed with tea. I would

  • love if you tried this at home as well. If you do, right down in the comments box below.

  • Let me know what you think. That is not all for tea though. You can check out my Honey

  • and Chamomile Herbal tea by clicking here now, I'm also gonna put that in the description box.
