Recipe: Brain Flow Spicy Chai Tea
We asked our INBLOOM team to share their "everyday faves" - simple ways they're using INBLOOM to add nutrition to their daily routine. Our founder Kate has perfected a spicy chai using Brain Flow to help her get in the zone.
"We all know that afternoon fog that rolls in right when we're trying to really focus. This chai is so much better than coffee at clearing it out and helping me get stuff done. I love it because it works for me on so many levels. The nutrients are actually stimulating and nourishing my brain, while the rich spicy smell and taste are waking up my senses. It's not a slap in the face, it's like breath of fresh air. After my chai I'm ready for anything."
Chai recipes in India vary by region, season, and even by family. This give a wide range of inspiration to draw on in customizing your own flavors that will clear your mind and get you ready to focus. Common spices we'd recommend playing with are cinammon, clove, black pepper, turmeric, cardamom, and chili powder.
