    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Chai Tea
  1. 1. Put all ingreedients in to the bowl and put on the lid and mc.


    2. Heat on 90 degrees, speed 2, 10 minutes, reverse Counter-clockwise operation.


    3. Use the simmering basket or a tea strainer to pour the chai tea in to your cup or jug.


    4. Add honey to your tea for a sweeter taste. 


    Note: Only use reverse if you have put the whole tea bag in the bowl - to prevent the bag from breaking. If you use loose leaf tea, then there is no need to use reverse.
