CHAI Tea by Ashleigh

Not only did I get to see my kids while on vacation, I got to meet some of their friends. One of Lacey's friends,Ashleigh made a wonderful treat for us and I wanted to pass along the recipe!
This was a completely new thing for me and I loved it!!!!
Give it a try! I'm gonna make some as soon as I get Lacy to do some WORLD MARKET shopping for me!!! :)
1/2 cup water 1 bag black tea
cinnamon stick 2 cups milk
2 Tbsp raw sugar 1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp ground ginger 1/8 tsp cardamom
In small saucepan combine water,tea bag and cinnamon.
Bring to boil- remove from heat and cover.
Let stand for 5 minutes
Discard tea bag and cinnamon stick
Stir in milk,sugar,vanilla'ginger and cardamom into tea.Cook, stirring over medium heat until heated through. DO NOT BOIL.
Serve in warm mugs- preferrably with good friends and quiet conversation. :)
It would be great with some of Lexi's dipped animal crackers, don't ya think???
Thanks so much for sharing this fantastic treat with us Ashleigh!!!!

Thanks for the recipe! I've always wondered how to make it from scratch. Hope you're having a great summer. Jami

Personally, I'd rather a good hot cup of dark coffee... no sugar please (raw or otherwise)
