SIMPLE PLEASURES: Chai Tea Recipe

Chai Tea Recipe | We Made it Home

I find a lot of joy in simple pleasures, one thing that I have been enjoying lately is Chai Tea. My friend Lindsey of Coco Love Homemade posted a few photos of the tea and it inspired me to make my own. When I looked up a recipe I was surprised that I already had everything on hand.

This recipe makes about 3 servings.

A note on ginger before we get started. I always keep a chunk of it in the freezer to use whenever I need it. It seems to stay good for months and it also grates easier with my microplane.

Along with the other ingredients listed above you will need 3 cups of water 1 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of sugar.

  • Start by adding water, grated ginger, and the rest of the spices in a pot.
  • Cover the pot with a lid and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the tea bags and let them steap for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the tea bags.
  • Strain the tea through a fine mesh or coffee filter.
  • Add sugar and milk and bring back to a simmer.
  • Serve with your favorite fall pastry.
