I'm a big fan of herbal tea, and one of my favourite blends is Chai. This is a twist on the classic that is slightly sweeter and creamier thanks to the coconut milk. My Cardamom Tea still retains all the spiced, warming goodness of standard chai though, so brew up a cup for everyone and unwind for the evening. If, like me, you're a former chai latte fan, but no longer consuming dairy, this could be exactly the alternative you've been searching for. If only my local coffee shop could put this on the menu…

This tea is not only delicious but also comforting. The combination of cardamom, black pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon creates a delightful blend of flavours that will warm you up from the inside out. It’s an excellent choice for a relaxing evening drink or a soothing start to your day.
