From-scratch spiced chai tea
I've been exploring more uses for my suribachi set (like a mortar and pestle) and recently delved into homemade chai tea!
A trip to the local health/bulk food store provided starter amounts of cardamom, allspice, and cloves -- spices I didn't already have in whole form. Also pictured above: peppercorns, ground ginger, and cinnamon sticks. What a delicious combo! :)
This Spiced Chai Tea is spicy, creamy, and sweet. The aroma of freshly crushed spices, the body of black tea, and the addition of heavy cream and brown sugar make this a very luxurious treat!
The days have been dark and dreary: perfect for a comforting hot cup. I'm still finding time to relax, amidst small children, home school books, and the never-ending to-do list!
