How to Make
With very little effort,
you can enjoy the
of middle eastern tea.
Mix 2 tbsp chai, 1 cup water and 1 cup milk into a saucepan.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in your sweetener -
sugar, honey, brown sugar....to suit your tastes.
Strain into a mug or carafe, and enjoy.
Easy Alternate Method:
Heat only the water with the Chai, and steep as you would any tea. Strain the liquid and THEN add your warmed milk. This way, you can put your chai leaves in the fridge and re-use them!
Super Easy Alternate Method:
Use one of our amazing all-natural, organic chai tea concentrates: half chai, half warmed milk. For an amazing iced drink, just use cold milk and add some ice. Delish!!
The World's Oldest Coffee-Brewing Method
Turkish coffee is all about relaxing, taking a much deserved break, visiting with old friends and making new ones. A Turkish proverb states: "A cup of coffee commits one to 40 years of friendship."
It is simple to make, but takes time and patience ....something we in the west (think of Keurig!) have little of. To make your own, you'll need an "ibrik" - at Cupper's we have brass ibriks with wooden handles, and the brass develops a lovely patina with use.
We have been told about many different ways of making traditional Turkish coffee - the following method seems to have the most consensus: Mix your coffee, cold water and sugar, stirred first then put over a low flame. When the mixture boils up, take it off the heat for a bit, then return it to heat for a second boil.
