Saturday 15 May from 9am to 11am

The Art of Chai is an exploration into the origins of this spiced tea, which is deep rooted in Indian and Ayurvedic culture. The complex flavours of chai and how chai is traditionally brewed all adds to the mystery surrounding this famed drink, an essential in Indian culture and now having gained a strong following in the Western world.

To understand what chai actually is, we will explore its culture, taste, ingredients and brewing methods. Hosted by Australia's leading chai expert, Uppma Virdi from Chai Walli, this class will equip you with the right skills to truly understand authentic masala chai.

By the end of this class you will be able to:

  1. Understand the history and culture of chai in India.

  2. Identify the key steps to creating a balanced chai blend - bringing together black tea and specific spices for both their taste and healing properties.

  3. Identify and taste different varieties of chai and understand 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.

This 2.5-hour class is facilitated by 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.
