One of my favorite drinks to grab in the Fall is a hot chai (or if I really need one a "Dirty Chai" which includes a shot of espresso). After seeing how easy it was for Essie Button to whip one up at home via one of her latest YouTube videos I decided to try my hand at one myself. A lot of the ingredients I had at home already and the few that I didn't have were easy enough to grab in small quantities at Whole Foods.
First I boiled two cups of water and all the spices together on the stove. After they boiled for a good few minutes I took them off and let them sit aside. I then added two tea bags to my mug and poured the water/spice mixture over the tea bags. I let them steep for a few minutes and then added frothed almond milk. Super simple!
2 cups of water
1 tbls of ground Cloves
1 tbls of ground All Spice
1 tbls of ground Cardamom
1 tbls of ground Nutmeg
1 Cinnamon stick
1 tbls of Brown Sugar
2 Tea bags (I used English Breakfast)
