1/3 Photos of Tea House Chai Concentrate
Allen Mayer says at his tea house in Ottawa, Canada, they now serve their own chais. Here's how they do it. For a mocha chai, use chocolate milk instead of white. For herbal chai, replace the Darjeeling with 1 tsp. each of chamomile, fennel seed and peppermint. This can be halved or doubled!
