The Best Cup of Chai

We don't get the most drastic weather changes here in our beloved San Diego, but for those of us not accustom to cold winter weather, the smallest chill in the air gets us to the bone. Warm your bones and spirit this winter with the best homemade Chai tea. 

Homemade Vanilla Chai Tea Latte

Ingredients: 
2 Tea Bags (any kind but I like Irish breakfast or Rooibos as they're nice and rich)
2 Cinnamon sticks (or powdered cinnamon, 1 teaspoon should do it)
1 Tsp of ground Cardamom
1 Tsp of ground cloves
1 Tblsp of brown sugar (or add honey at the end to avoid sugar)
Vanilla flavored coconut cream (for vegan friendly use coconut cream, for non vegan use regular vanilla creamer)

This recipe is for one pot of tea but could easily be drawn out to more. Boil your pot of water, and steep 2 tea bags and cinnamon sticks in tea pot. Mix cardamom, cloves and sugar and add to tea pot. Let steep for 5 minutes. 

Add Vanilla coconut creamer to your liking as you serve your tea. Enjoy!!
