A Caveat and Affiliates
First off, a little caveat: within my articles you will find affiliate links, meaning if you buy them, I get a small commission. Your cost is not affected. In addition, I am an Amazon Associate and I earn from qualifying purchases on Amazon.
And yes, if I say that I recommend a product here, it means I truly believe it is a good product. I refuse to recommend any product that I have not researched and believe to be a good value.
Even better, I provide you with a very clear picture of the product, it’s use, and the probable value.
Earning your trust is important to me. I run this website myself and the commissions and donations help support the site.
Sound reasonable and fair enough? Let’s continue to the article.

This Tea helps boost your energy by giving you a jolt of caffeine within minutes of your first few sips. It helps fight against cancer, and Easy Chai tea Recipes are just a click away!

Some studies have shown that both black Tea and some of the spices found in chai tea might have chemoprotective properties. If further research confirms the claims that black Tea may reduce cancer risk, chai tea could be a winner in combining them into a delicious drink.
Both ginger and black pepper can be very beneficial for digestion. Studies showed that black pepper and ginger could help improve your gut health and digestion.
Black Tea and other spices help do this and can help reduce harmful cholesterol levels, which is a great thing for some people.
Inflammation is linked to many chronic diseases, from diabetes to Alzheimer’s. Research has shown that black Tea and many spices such as ginger, turmeric, cloves, cardamom, and cinnamon show anti-inflammatory properties and help fight many diseases.
Fortunately, our easy chai tea recipes help fight that inflammation. And that means that good health tastes good, too!
Tea is the BEST to help reduce inflammation and relieve the symptoms of related illnesses.
Also, reducing inflammation can help to prevent diseases such as strokes and heart attacks. Tea helps inflammation symptoms daily. And with chai teas, you can add anything to it! 🙂
One of the main things I like about Chai Tea is that it helps you feel nauseous or sick. (sick as in cold, flu)
It helps your heart out as well.
This food pairs well with some other delicious foods, too. Consider this Raspberry Cream Pie recipe. It pairs well with the easy chai tea recipes we share.
OK, now to the recipes!!
This first one will be a super Easy Chai Tea Recipe to follow.
What I love to do with my Tea is to sprinkle a bit of Nutmeg, just like I said at the start of this post. (thank me later, LOL)
Here is one more perfect yet straightforward-tasting recipe.
After all, when you want chai tea, you want the best easy chai tea recipes!
Spice ingredients for one pot of Tea:
- 1/2 of a star anise star
- 10-12 whole cloves (depending on how strong you want it)
- 6-7 whole allspice
- One heaping teaspoon of cinnamon bark (or two short sticks)
- 6-7 whole white peppercorns
- One cardamon pod opened to the seeds
- Other ingredients:
- 1-1/2 cups water
- 4 cups whole Milk
- Two heaping tablespoons of a high-quality, full-bodied, broad-leaf black tea (Ceylon or English Breakfast tea. Links)
- 1/2 of Sugar.
1 In a small saucepan, add the spices to 1 cup of water. Bring your water to a boil; then remove from heat; let steep for 5-20 mins, depending on how strong you want the spice flavor in your cup of chat tea.
2 Add 4-6 cups of whole Milk to the water and spices. If you don’t have whole Milk, you can also use a few tablespoons of non-fat or low-fat Milk or Soy Milk. Bring the milk and spice mixture to a boil and remove from heat.
3 Add the Tea to the Milk and let your Tea steep for 5 to 10 minutes to taste.
You can add Sugar at this point if you like your chai tea sweet, serve without Sugar, and let people put in the amount of Sugar they want. Traditionally, Sugar is added before serving.
4 Strain into a pot. Serve. Add Sugar to taste.
And if you want, you could add whipped cream to make it extra tasty.
And this Tea is excellent for breakfast. And there are so many other great teas that are for breakfast as well. See some of our favorites here.
Now for my favorite products that I use in my home
I found this Tea at my supermarket years ago, and it has been great to find Tea like this, even on amazon! Two things about this Tea.
1. It has a strong flavor, even with just one teabag!
2. This Tea is OK by itself or with some milk. Your choice! 🙂
