Rooibos Chai

Rooibos Chai created by Kitchen Witch Steph

Rooibos leaves, which are grown in South Africa, resemble tea leaves but come from a different plant and don't have any tannins. They have recently made an appearance on store shelves here. You can substitute black tea in this recipe; add it during the last 5 minutes of simmering.

    4 1/4 stars. This is a pretty good chai that is lightly flavoured. I used rice milk to be dairy free and simmered everything in a bit less water for about 17 minutes, as simmering rice milk from previous experience makes it separate. I used dark brown sugar crystals for the sugar and do recommend brown. I had to use 2 Rooibos tea bags as I didn't have loose leaves. I think this needs more spice but I liked the amount of sugar which wasn't too sweet, just perfect. Made for Comfort Cafe - Snow Queens, Round 01/10.

    I am sorry but this ended up being sort of flat...didn't have the depth of flavor that I am used to in a chai tea. Anything that I may have done wrong? I think I followed the recipe to a tee. Will have to think on it and maybe try another day. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT4.

    This was pretty good. I don't think I'll make it again, but I think that's just more of my personal preference. I love Chai tea, but this just wasn't what I expected. Made for ZWT 4.
