A creamy and comforting drink to enjoy all day, all year. 

The chai spice mix makes a perfect gift for birthdays or holidays. Put it in a pretty jar, make a cute label and give to a loved one. 

To make this chai from my book "With a Pinch of Yoga" for yourself or someone you love, you need to make the chai spice mix first. 

⅓ cup cinnamon chips (you can use about 5 cinnamon sticks instead)
¼ cup cardamom pods
¼ cup anise seeds
¼ cup coriander seeds
2 tbs black peppercorns
1 ½ tbs whole cloves
1 tbs fennel seeds

Combine all spices in a jar. 

To make the chai, bring 

2 cups water 

to a boil. Put 

1 tbs chai spice mix 
1 – 3 cm fresh ginger

in a tea sieve. Put the sieve in the boiling water. 
Lower the heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Towards the end of the 10 minutes, add 

½ cup homemade nut milk (strained almond or hazelnut works really well)

and let simmer until nut milk is warm.
Remove the sieve (careful, it will be hot). Pour chai in a mug.

Irina emits a healing energy that just feels good to be with. Each time we've met, I've relaxed into her presence, openness, authenticity and ability to offer support. She has helped me gain the perspective I needed to be more compassionate and gentle with myself. If you're ready to do the hard work of personal growth, I'd highly recommend partnering with Irina.
