Chai Tea Latte

Chai Tea Latte

Ahh… winter is coming. Winter for us does not mean snow falling and cozy evenings gathered around the fire. It DOES mean clear 70° days and night temperatures that dip into the 60’s. Our house is not insulated, so when it’s 60° outside, that’s the temperature inside too. And that feels cold. What a better way to start a chilly morning than with your Bible and a hot drink?

I’m not much of a coffee drinker, and hot cocoa can make me feel ick, so a chai tea latte is a perfect fit on a cold morning. It only takes a few minutes to make, and there’s enough to save for the next morning or to share with a spouse or friend.

I’ll confess that I only knew chai tea as something that came out of a box. When I first saw a recipe for chai tea and started experimenting with it, I was delighted that I could make something so delicious with spices I already had. And of course, when made from scratch, the taste is far superior.

Step over to your spice cupboard, dump, and stir. I think you’ll be pleasantly delighted.
