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!!! :)
CHAI TEA
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!!!!

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