To coin the phrase from a certain American fantasy series… “Winter is coming”. Much as we have loved the summer, we cannot deny it anymore. It is now time to get cosy, make some scrummy food, and embrace the Autumn months.
Autumn brings with it many things; chillier mornings, darker evenings, and the temptation to snuggle under a blanket, but it also brings so much beauty, if you know where to look for it.
Think of the colour change on the trees, walking on crunchy leaves as they have gracefully fallen from their branches, listening to geese overhead flying south for the Winter, lighting the fire, and watching it dance and pop. However, by far and away the highlight of autumn for us is the excuse to make some seriously yummy comfort food, get your friends round, and share it all over a BRUU.
When it’s a little cooler outside, who wouldn’t want a BRUU to warm you up? And boy do we have the perfect tea for you…
Chai tea is known to go back 5,000 years, when an Indian king ordered a spiced tea, to help heal him. Thought to be a cure in Ayurvedic medicine, the spices had healing properties when ingested, and Chai tea was born.
‘Chai’ is the Hindi word for tea, so technically, you don’t need to add the ‘tea’ afterwards, as you are effectively saying tea tea, but we aren’t sticklers for perfect grammar!
Traditionally Chai can include cardamom, chilli, ginger and cloves. When blended properly, it can really warm you up. If you have never tried a Chai before or have never even heard of it, you can visit our members area to add Chai tea to your preferences, or visit our online teashop to order some.
