Pukka's Vanilla Chai Mulled Wine
We're definitely not alone when we say we absolutely love Chai - this warming tea has been cherished for centuries in India and now all around the world.
A winter favourite, this blend of calming herbs and heating spices not only helps to calm and settle a busy mind, Chai also helps to improve digestion, enhance the immune system, fight inflammation and even has antioxidant properties. That's a whole lot of goodness in just one cup!
So, for those times when a steaming mug of our tea just isn’t warming enough, we've come up with a mulled wine infused recipe to help warm your cockles. Sensationally spiced with our own Vanilla Chai tea bags, our festive herbal mulled wine creates a warm, soothing and uplifting experience that will keep you toasty as those chilly winter nights close in.
- 2 litres organic Merlot

Take 2 litres of organic Merlot (the wine highest in antioxidant resveratrol) and add to a large saucepan. Add 2 sliced organic lemons. Cut 2 organic oranges in half and press cloves into the skin. Add to the pan, along with 10 Pukka Vanilla Chai tea bags and some grated nutmeg (optional). Warm the mixture (do not boil), then add 6 tablespoons of brown sugar.
