I LOVE a nice cup of Chai Latte and ordinarily I drink this one from Celestial Seasonings…
Oooooh it’s so good! Just add a little bit of milk (or cream, I dare you!!)
Mmmmm…. the best unwind, put your PJ’s on and relax kind of tea!
Today I wanted to do something extra special though. It’s been really tough starting back at work again after a great maternity leave and since we’re still trying to eat lowcarb, the usual treats for myself are no-go, so I decided to treat myself to a great homemade cup of Chai Latte.
PenNnyLane’s homemade Chai-Te-Latte:
2,5 dl Milk (about 1 cup)
2,5 dl Water (same as above!)
2 Black Darjeeling teabags
Let the tea boil for 3-4 minutes and then rest for 5 minutes.
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon of crushed ginger
½ teaspoon of crushed cardamom
2 tablespoons of brown sugar or sweetner equivalent
1 teaspoon of vanilla-sugar (or extract)
Bring the tea to a boil again for about 4-5 minutes.
Strain the spices from the tea and pour into your favorite tea-mug and ENJOY!!!
If you feel like it – add whipped cream or milkfoam and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
