If you can boil water...
You can brew UP N' ATOM brand Chai.
We encourage experimentation until you find the strength and flavor of the brew that matches your tastes, and to help you with that here's some UP N' ATOM brewing tips to get you started.
Bring to a boil 3 to 4 quarts of water.
Lower the heat to a very low simmer and add 1/2 to 2/3s cup spice blend.
Let simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
You can always brew larger or smaller quantities depending on your needs. Just make adjustments in spice amounts and simmering times.
(5/12/10 update: by adjustments I mean I'm thinking smaller amounts ought to be simmered shorter times)
A new UP N' ATOM brewing tip is to brew in the evening. Simmer the spices for the 30 minutes, then turn off the heat and let it sit over night. The long steep really helps to blend the flavors and gives plenty of time for everything to settle, making it easier to strain in the morning. Strain and store in your refrigerator to reheat a cup or pot at a time, it'll keep well 5-7 days without milk or sweetners, add them when you're ready to drink a cup either hot or iced.
Traditionally Chai is very sweet, and you'll have to choose how sweet you like. It tastes great with honey, sugar or sweetener of your choice.
Serve with 1/4 or 1/3 soy, almond or milk of your choice and tastes.
