Our blend has been carefully crafted from ingredients grown at elevation in the Himalayas of Nepal.
This gives our blend an enhanced flavor profile that is not only delicious but healthy too.
Our Himalayan Chai was designed over several years.
Through trail and error we decided on a secret combination of the following ingredients:
- Black Pepper
- Star Anise
- Fennel Seeds

Make 2 Cups of Himalayan Chai
Step 1: Preparation with Presence
- Begin by measuring out 2 tablespoons or 10 grams of Elevated Himalayan Chai. Approach this task with mindfulness, focusing on the texture and aroma of the tea.
Step 2: Embracing the Element of Water
- Place a pot on the stove and add 1 cup of water. Turn on the heat and allow the water to gradually come to a boil. As you wait, take a moment to acknowledge the transformative power of water.
Step 3: Infusion with Intention
- When the water reaches a boil, gently introduce the 2 tablespoons of Himalayan Chai loose tea to the pot. Lower the heat to create a serene simmer. Watch the tea and water engage in a mindful dance.
Step 4: Simmering for Synchronicity
- Allow the tea to simmer for 4 minutes. This duration is not just about brewing; it's a period for flavors to harmonize, mirroring the principles of balance and unity.
Step 5: The Fusion of Elements
- After 4 minutes of simmering, introduce 1 cup of your preferred milk (whether it's whole milk or oat milk) to the saucepan. Continue to simmer for another 4 minutes. This merging of tea and milk symbolizes the interconnectedness of all things.
Step 6: Straining with Precision
- Mindfully use a strainer or tea infuser to separate the liquid from the tea leaves. This act of straining represents the clarity that can emerge from the stillness of the mind.
Step 7: Sweetness, if Desired
- If you choose to sweeten your chai, do so with awareness. Add your preferred sweetener (like sugar or honey) to the chai, adjusting the amount to your taste. One tablespoon of sugar is a suggested starting point.
Step 8: The Offering
- Pour the freshly brewed Himalayan Chai into teacups or a teapot. As you serve, reflect on the intention and mindfulness that have gone into this preparation. Each sip becomes a moment to cherish, a reminder of the beauty in simplicity.
These steps not only guide you in the preparation of a delightful cup of Elevated Himalayan Chai but also offer a mindful journey to savor and appreciate each moment in the process.
