Tis the season to cozy up with some delicious tea! One of my favorites is my homemade chai tea. It’s easy, delicious, AND makes your whole house smell wonderful!! Just simmer the following ingredients for about 30 minutes, strain and enjoy! Some people like to add black tea while simmering–this may be a problem if you want to sip it before bed. Some people also like to add milk (cow, goat, almond, coconut, etc.) or honey, but I find it perfect without them. Hope you like it as much as I do!!
