Iced Chai Published on October 04, 2013

In a previous post (http://www.matterialfix.com/blogs/travel-log/8295301-culture), we talked a little about our spice market experience, and how our time there kicked our senses into overdrive. The memory of vibrant colors and delicious scents still surprises me—it was that amazing!
 
With the weekend looking like a total scorcher, we wanted to revisit our favorite spice concoction (one we fell in deeper love with in India). Because while summer warmth still lingers, and little pockets of cool, fall air tease, it’s the combination of both that has us craving the cozy delicacy (cooled down a couple notches, of course) of chai. The perfect summer-into-fall beverage!

How do we remedy this craving? By creating a batch of our own! Check out this easy recipe we stumbled upon:

What you’ll need:
8 chai tea bags
1 cup whole milk (or soy if you prefer!)
1/3 cup honey
Ice cubes
4 cups of water

Directions:

  1. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan
  2. Remove from the heat and add in the tea bags
  3. Let tea bags steep for 5 minutes
  4. Remove the bags before stirring in the milk and honey
  5. Chill in a pitcher for at least 1 hour 
  6. Serve over ice!  
And voila, your very own serving of Chai Iced Tea Latte (we love pouring ours into a Mason jar, and topping it off with a fun straw). Now go forth, share, and enjoy!
