Autumn is the perfect opportunity to get creative in the kitchen and experiment with some seasonal flavours. After a brisk Autumn walk, there is nothing better than coming home to a hot cup of tea. And a spicy Chai is a perfect option.

Chai tea is spicy, grounding yet invigorating. And it can be made all the better with some Autumn flavours.

Our favourite inspirational Autumn Chai recipe helps us to connect with this season, and savour its rich flavours.

What you’ll need

How to make it

  1. Put a pot of water on to boil, around 350ml will do nicely for a mugful and increase this in 350ml increments for each person
  2. Peel the orange, careful to not get any of the juicy fruit in there
  3. Add 2-3 orange peels to the water, and simmer for 3mins
  4. Add in the Cinnamon Stick and Peppercorns, and continue to simmer for 2mins
  5. Turn the heat down low, and add in 2tsp of Breakfast in the Buff per person or per 350ml
  6. Steep for 2 mins off the heat
  7. Strain into mugs
  8. Sweeten with honey
  9. You can decorate with a curl of orange zest and a sprig of pine if you’re feeling particularly Autumnal!

Make it a Latte

You can even make this as a latte. Add some milk after the honey, and sprinkle over some cinnamon powder to decorate.
