Chai Concentrate

I love coffee, but I'm also a tea lover and for me there's nothing better than a hot cup of tea on a cold rainy day.

We've had nothing but rain here for days on end and I was in the mood for some tea, but wanted a little kick to it and I do love a good Chai Tea.

Problem is that it can be quite expensive when bought at Starbucks or anywhere else, so I went in search of the perfect homemade Chai Tea and I found it. So easy and SO SO good.

  1. I don't think I've had chai tea before. I just assumed there was some kind of 'chai' tea leaves. Your recipe sounds better than I would think chai tea tastes like. Thanks for sharing!

    How'd you figure out what the ingredients were? Just curious.
