A fragrant, rich and deeply comforting cup of aromatic chai is one of life’s simple pleasures.
I have been making and drinking chai for more than 20 years using a spice and tea blend family recipe that has evolved into a distinctly Bundaberg blend called Lonnie’s Chai (thanks Bunda Ginga).
I grind whole organic spices freshly for each small batch for maximum flavour and aroma.
The ritual of making chai is part of the pleasure - all the senses are involved.
Taking time to stop and stir something in a pan as the flavours start to speak to each other is a daily meditation.
Lonnie's Chai and Bundaberg Yoga are proud event partners
of Bundaberg Tourism's annual food and wellbeing festival Taste Bundaberg.
This year's chai and yoga event is called Relax, Eat and Sip
on Sunday June 9 1.30-3.30pm at Sandcastles, Bargara.
It is a delicious combination of slow, relaxing yoga, chai tasting
and scrumptious healthy high tea by the sea.
This event booked out early last year, so don't miss out!
