Expert Tips

  • Sprinkling a little extra brown sugar over bowlfuls of this delicious breakfast cereal will bring out the subtle flavor of the chai.
  • Groats are hulled and crushed buckwheat--also known as kasha or buckwheat kernels. Look for them in the bulk section or the natural foods section of your grocery store.
