Easy Breakfast : Chai Poached Pears


“Chai has been traced to the Hindu natural healing system ‘ayurveda’ which prescribes specific herbs to aid with certain body ailments. The spice blend that I have used is called Prana Chai is made locally in Melbourne and served at many cafes.  I love the warm sweet taste of a chai latte if I’m not feeling like a coffee.  Rather than being dry, the spice blend is wet and the flavour of the spices infuses really quickly.  This blend contains Black Ceylon tea, Australian bushland honey, cinnamon, cardamon, star anise, peppercorns, cloves and fresh ginger.  The spicy chai flavour works perfectly with the soft pear flesh once it is cooked.” the macadames
