To prepare a Rose Cardamom Latte the recipe is as below:

  • Take 1 cup water and ½ cup whole milk in a saucepan and boil. If you are intolerant to dairy, we recommend substituting both the water and milk with oat milk or coconut milk.

  • Add sugar if wanted.
  • Strain into a cup.

  • Sip, savor, and enjoy!

For the hot summer days, when you are just in the mood for an iced chai, we recommend a Rose and Cardamom Iced Tea. This aromatic tea recipe can be made by either preparing a concentrate without milk or storing it in the refrigerator to batch the tea and add milk and ice when you are ready. You can also make the rose cardamom chai based on the recipe above; let it cool and chill in the fridge for 6-8 hours. It's a wonderful, refreshing, and aromatic option on hot days.

Ingredients

  • 8g dry Rose Cardamom Chai
  • 350g heavy whipping cream
  • 40g powdered sugar or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Tips

  • Cooling cream in a metal vessel over a similar vessel with ice would be the quickest method to chill the chantilly.
