TEA TIME

There is love, there is labor, there’s also time – the essential ingredient of péro-making, not unlike making tea.


For their tea time, Péro brought in their local chai wale bhaiya Ram Sumer Ji to create his flavourful cup of tea with ginger and hand-ground spices. In honor of Péro we would like to share our take on authentic Masala Chai, perfect for drinking while reading a good book or enjoying an afternoon with loved ones. We hope you will enjoy making it for your own tea time. 

Ingredients:

  • 3 Whole Peppercorns
  • 3 Whole Cloves
  • 1 Whole Star Anise Pod
  • 6 Whole Cardamom Pods
  • 2 Tablespoons of Your Favorite Loose Black Tea
  • 1 Tablespoon Grated Ginger
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 Vanilla Bean
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar 
  • 2 Cups of Water
  • 1 Cup Milk 

Steps:

  1. Lightly crush peppercorns, cloves, star anise, and cardamom with a spoon. Scoop out paste from vanilla bean.
  2. Add to a small pot with the water and milk. 
  3. Stir in ginger, sugar, vanilla bean paste, and add cinnamon stick. 
  4. Bring mixture to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and add black tea. Let steep for 20 minutes.
