You find the most magical spice infusions in India. Although I still call them teas, technically, they are infusions or tisanes. In India, tea (chai) is only made from the leaves of the tea plant, often supplemented with spices. Have a look at our Chai recipes, and try Wintery Chai Masala, Illaichi Chai, and Ashram Chai.
This tea is a beautiful infusion of coriander seeds and root ginger, warming, and relaxing. Make it for your afternoon tea and sip it with a biscuit.
