Switch out the black tea with naturally caffeine-free rooibos tea so you can enjoy a masala chai at any time of the day. Not only is rooibos naturally caffeine-free, but it’s excellent for your digestion, and has a high amount of antioxidants.
  1. Place the water and tea bag in a small saucepan, cover and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to simmer and leave for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add non-dairy milk, sugar and spices. Bring back to a simmer, just until it’s heated. This will ensure that you don’t get the milk film over top of your chai.
  4. Allow to sit for a couple of minutes before removing the bag, pouring into a large mug and sprinkling with extra chai spice if desired.
If you want to use homemade flax milk, try this process instead as the fiber likes to separate from the milk when heated and will create a cloudy, uneven chai:

Use 1 cup of water instead of ½ cup.
Only use ½ cup of flax milk instead of 1 cup.
Place flax milk on the counter until it’s brought to room temperature.
Follow directions above, but add flax milk at step 4.
