What is Chai?

Chai tea is a type of spiced tea that originated in India.

It is typically made by brewing black tea with a mixture of spices, such as cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves and black pepper.

Chai tea can be enjoyed plain or with milk and sweetener added.

It has a warming and comforting flavor and aroma, and is often associated with relaxation and mindfulness.

    1. I like finding copy cat recipes,thanks for sharing your recipe on #OMHGFF this week, appreciate your visit!!
      Have a great weekend!
      Karren

    2. If I only wanted to use milk instead of water, should I just cut out the water entirely, or double the amount of milk needed?

    3. I have an espresso machine with a milk steamer/frother jet. Normally I use this to bypass having to use a saucepan for the milk when making lattes and such. Is there any way I can get the steps for making this with that jet attachment rather than using the saucepan? Thank you sounds yummy!

      1. I guess you could try it with the steamer… but you really do want the flavors to simmer together. It’s not just about heating them up but letting the flavors mix in together and create an overall taste. Definitely let me know if you try it with your steam, however πŸ™‚

    4. This is really good. I’d like it a little more spicy, not sure which spice to add more of. This really is a delicious copy!!!

      1. Rather than adding one particular spice, have you thought about making a “stronger” cup of chai… raise up all of the measurements of the chai vs. liquid. It would be like getting an extra shot in your cup at Starbucks.

    5. I LOVE chai latte’s! I will have to give this one a try! Trying to break my Starbucks addiction!!! Thanks for sharing at Happiness is Homemade Link Party!

    6. Oh, Chai Latte’s are my favorite! Thanks for sharing the recipe at the Family Joy Blog Link Party this week! Please join us again next week!

    7. Hi, looking forward to making this! I assume everything is ground except for the cloves, or do you use Whole Cardamon and full cloves and all else is ground?

    8. It tasted yummy though I didn’t add nutmeg and honey and take 1cup milk and 1 cup water added ingredients 1/4 instead of half teaspoon

    9. I like your recipe. But this isn’t how Starbucks makes theirs. They pour it out of a container of Oregon Chai. The lazy way. When you steam milk everything tastes good.

    10. Hi this is Kristina visiting from Tuesdays at Our Home. Not only does this save money but I bet the ingredients are much better for you too. It’s a win win! I’ve always thought it’s better to make drinks at home anyway because you can make them exactly how you like them.

    11. This is my FAVORITE thing to get at any coffee shop. I love knowing that you have a recipe that I can make at home for a fraction of the cost. Thank you so much for sharing it with us! I found your link on the Dream, Create, and inspire blog hop.
