M E T H O D :
Use 1 tsp per 8oz of boiling water (212°F). Simmer on low for 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and allow to steep for 5 more minutes before enjoying. Spent tea may be brewed a second time.
Large Batch Option: Use 6 cups of water and 2 tbs of Chaga Chai (using the 1 tsp of chai to 1 cup of water ratio). Simmer on medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and allow to steep for 5 minutes more. Strain and enjoy!
Slow Cooker Method: set at "low" until color of tea appears dark and flavor is rich, about 1-2 hours. Set to "warm." Enjoy a cup with a pour over strainer. Consume throughout the next couple of days and add more water as needed; until tea appears to have run its course. This ensures you have extracted all the nourishing benefits of your tea. This is the method they use in the north by natives who harvest Chaga and drink on a daily basis. Some slow cookers simmer at "warm" so be sure to watch your first slow cooker batch.
Wood Stove Method: For the colder months, heating a pot of chai in a cast iron kettle on a wood stove is a lovely way to enjoy your brew. Not all wood stoves recommend this, so confirm with the manufacturer. Please remember to never leave a kettle unattended on a stove, as it may boil dry and the cast iron coating can emit dangerous fumes. Use caution with this method if using around unattended children or pets.
