What is long pepper?
We heart chai and this great post! Just shared.
Agave nectar is a fab substitute for refined sugars and lighter in taste than honey, most larger supermarkets have it, if not you can find it on amazon.
i like d the briefing up of tea thank u .
If I can't find ingredients locally, I use amazon. They usually have it
I love keeping leftovers in the fridge. I usually use them up within 3 days; they can be a tasty addition to rice when cooking it, and are delicious when drank cold. Store it without adding milk or sugar; you can reheat it if you like, or drink it cold. If you want to add sugar while it is cold you will need to dissolve sugar into warm water to create a simple syrup because sugar crystals won't dissolve. (Maple syrup will mix in nicely, but honey is too thick).
You should be able to find the ingredients at just about any grocery store - cardamom, cinnamon and black pepper corns are found in the spice aisle, fresh ginger most likely with the produce.
It will taste better if made from fresh ingredients, but you can use dried cardamom powder instead of pods, ground cinnamon instead of sticks and ground dried ginger instead of fresh. Put these into a coffee filter and seal well- you may want to tie it off with string- and then steep as desired. Play with the quantities, when you mix, and steep the brew longer for a stronger flavour.
I hope this helps! Enjoy :)
Does anyone know of a cruelty-free honey? Bees seem to have it pretty bad these days. Agave syrup is great, but friends are insisting on honey. Thanks!
Can you keep the brew if not all of it has been used? And if so, for how long?
What is long pepper? It is available in something like Whole Foods or do I need to find more of a specialty store?
