Oh, my, am I behind the times. This summer I discovered the infinite joy that is iced chai. David has been drinking it for YEARS and I’ve never really taken to it until now.
Evidently the secret ingredient that I didn’t know I loved was… almond milk! (Weird, right?!)
Here’s how David makes chai for us:
He boils and then simmers cloves, cardamom, orange slices, and a couple cinnamon sticks in a stockpot full of water for an hour (or two). He adds English Breakfast tea for five minutes, then removes the tea bags. We keep it unsweetened in the fridge for up to two weeks.
I like to add almond milk and a dash of honey to my cup of chai.
