Green Mint Chai Tea Recipe – Hot or Iced Tea
Ellen Easton has shared with us her recipe blend for Green Mint Chai tea featured in her Springtime Celebration luncheon menu. The mint added to the chai blend lends a Mediterranean twist with a refreshing flavor that can stand alone without milk. This is an especially excellent tea to accompany a spicy meal or serve to a gathering of friends. The Green Mint Chai tea blend consists of the foundation of green tea leaves combined with ginger, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh mint leaves blended together and steeped in a pot of tea. Green mint chai tea can be served hot or enjoyed as an iced tea.
