Homemade Chai Latte


I had my first taste of chai tea when I worked at a coffee shop many years ago.  One sip and I was hooked.  It's a creamy, sweet and spicy cup of comfort.  All the recipes I had found to make it at home called for exotic spices that I didn't have and I was not willing to pay $$$ to invest in them.

Then I found this recipe in my Betty Crocker cookbook.  It may not be completely authentic, but it is delicious and made from spices that everyone should already have in their cabinet.

I halve this recipe to make a jumbo mug just for me. :)

2 cups water
4 bags black tea
2 cups milk
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Heat water to boiling in a medium saucepan.  Add tea bags, reduce heat and simmer  uncovered 2 minutes.  Remove tea bags.

Stir in remaining ingredients; heat to boiling.  Stir with a wire whisk to foam milk.  Enjoy!
