Comfy Tummy Chai Tea

This delicious chai contains lots of lovely anti-inflammatory and tummy-friendly spices. A perfect digestive aid for those who struggle with wind, bloating or a sore tum. If you brew it without the tea bag, you can make it into a caffeine-free soothing comfy tummy bedtime milk.

Experiment with blending the many other chai spices out there to create your own delicious tea. Vanilla, nutmeg and fennel seeds all work well.

The lovely cups I have used in the photo came from the awesome Jo Deakin.
