Chai Lattes from Starbucks are my favourite, but Starbucks is very expensive and definitely not on the route when it's time for the Timmy's run at work. Tim Horton's is to the north and Starbucks to the south.
I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands, there had to be a cheaper way to enjoy my favourite drink.
Here's my recipe for Chai Latte.
1 cup water
2 bags of black tea
2 three inch cinnamon sticks
3 teaspoons of sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/4 teaspoons of ground ginger
1/4 teaspoons of ground cardamom
battery operated wisk
In a saucepan combine water, tea bags and cinnamon. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Discard tea bags and cinnamon sticks. Stir in sugar, vanilla, ginger and cardamom into tea. Warm over medium heat.
Warm half mug mug of milk in microwave, approximately 2 minutes. Foam milk with battery operated wisk.
Fill other mug with tea half way then fill mug to top with milk placing foam on top.
