A chilly fall evening…the perfect occasion for a delicious cup of Chai Tea…but I’ve found that chai tea mixes are quite pricey! So I recently went on a hunt (Pinterest style…) for a recipe for chai tea mixes, and I found that most of the mixes required an extensive list of ingredients…most of which most of us don’t keep on hand. I deducted that it would likely be just as cost-effective to buy the expensive mix! So I set off on a mission to use what I had on hand (only 6 ingredients!!) and make a cup for myself. The results…Delicious!
Here’s my recipe:
one tea bag, one cup of water, 3/4 cup of milk, 1tsp. cinnamon, 1 Tbs. sugar, and 1&1/2 Tbs liquid flavored coffee creamer (vanilla, caramel,cinnamon flavored etc. It’s really up to you…most good flavored coffee creamers would work perfectly!)
Directions: Place tea bag in one cup hot water & brew a “strong” cup of tea. Add the cinnamon and sugar to the hot water and stir vigorously! This step is important, because you want to fully dissolve the cinnamon in the hot water. Add the milk and creamer. Stir once again, and heat to desired temperature. Stir vigorously once again…
Enjoy your perfect cup of inexpensive Chai Tea!
