An exotic and powerful over-night infused mocktail, bringing together traditional chai flavours from Asia with the honey-like sweetness of our ultra-rare wild Caucasian safflower, a popular Middle East flavour. This mocktail has been designed to look as beautiful as the sun rising over the Arabian Desert.
Recipe for 6-8 cups
10g Nazani Tea safflower
16 Cardamom pods
20g Peeled ginger
1 Cinnamon stick
1L Sparkling ginger ale
1L Spring water
Place the safflower, cardamom pods, peppercorns, cloves, peeled ginger and crushed cinnamon stick into a teapot (with a strainer), cafetiere, or boiling pot.
Boil the water and pour into the teapot, cafetiere, or boiling pot.
Cover the teapot, cafetiere, or boiling pot and leave to infuse for as long as possible. Overnight infusions of 7-10 hours are encouraged but not necessary, as long as the mixture has cooled down naturally and no ice has been added in the process.
To create your mocktail strain 125ml into a highball glass and add 125ml of sparkling ginger ale. Serve with ice.
