Caffeine Free Chai Tea

We are in India and all around us people are drinking chai tea – not drinking milk or caffeine. I have come up with an alternative that still has all the medicinal qualities of chai tea.

2 opened pods of Cardamom (improves digestion and metabolism)
1 stick of cinnamon, or 2 tsp cinnamon powder (antibacterial, anti fungal and helps to  reduce blood sugar levels)
6 black pepper corns, ground (improves digestion, lowers cholesterol, boosts immunity,  helps protect the stomach)
1 inch of ginger chopped, or 2 tsp ground (muscle relaxant, anti inflammatory, pain relief )
2 tsp of roobish tea
3 cacao beans (optional)

Place all of the ingredients into water and simmer slowly for 20 minutes, strain and drink.
This can be served with a milk of your choice or black.
