Explore the origins of chai and gain an understanding of this spiced tea which is deeply rooted in Indian and Ayurvedic culture. Led by Uppma from Chai Walli in Summer Hill, we will explore what chai actually is, including its culture, taste ingredients and brewing methods.
- Understand the history and culture of chai in India.
- Identify the key steps to creating a balanced chai blend - bringing together black tea and specific spices for both their taste and healing properties.
- Identify and taste different varieties of chai and understand how the brewing method is a vital part of the chai process.
- Be fully equipped to brew chai at home using traditional Indian methods.
This two-hour class is facilitated by Chai Walli founder Uppma who is the granddaughter of an Ayurvedic doctor who specialised in Indian spices and remedial chai. Her rich Indian upbringing involved playing and experimenting with Indian herbs and spices. Chai was simply a part of daily life.
This workshop will tantalise all your senses as you will be able to see, touch, smell and (of course!) taste, authentic Indian chai. Uppma will deliver this class in a fun, open and comfortable approach for you to learn all about chai; the beloved national drink of India.
At this moment in time, we require everyone (16+) to show their proof of vaccination before they enter the class. Masks will also be mandatory (12+) when we are not tasting chai.
