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.
