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!
