It was a rainy, gray day yesterday. It made me so happy! The breeze was cool and refreshing, the bits of rainfall were soothing, and the lighting was perfect for some photography. In addition to several other projects (I was so productive!) I decided to brew a pot of chai tea and share my recipe with you all! It's easy and sweet and comforting - the perfect complement to a quiet afternoon.
Spiced Chai Tea
You will need:
2 cups of water
2 black tea bags
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 tsp of ground ginger
2 1/2 cups of milk
1/3 cup of sugar
Boil the water with the tea bags and spices in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes to steep tea and infuse spices.
Stir in milk and return to a boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly so milk does not overflow.
Strain spices and tea bags; discard. Stir in sugar and serve!
This tea is so delicious. You can store any leftovers in the refrigerator and simply reheat it on the stove. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
