Description

Due to the high demand of our chai classes, we are hosting a winter Art of Chai Workshop for you to learn all about chai and warm up with a steamy hot chai!

Traditionally, chai is a mixture of black tea and a perfect blend of spices that is brewed with water and milk. The Art of Chai is an exploration of chai's origins, its deep rooted Indian culture, Ayurveda, the complex flavours of chai and spices and how chai is brewed. To understand what chai actually is, we will explore its culture, taste and art. Hosted by Australia's leading chai expert, Uppma Virdi from Chai Walli, this class will equip you with the right skills to understand chai.

By the end of this class you will be able to:
  1. Understand the journey and culture of chai.
  2. Identify the key steps to create a chai blend.
  3. Identify and taste different chai's and how the brewing method is a vital part of the chai process.
  4. Be fully equipped to brew chai at home using traditional Indian methods.
