I love chai tea, but sometimes when I purchase it pre-made it has too much sugar, too little spice, too much spice or has a strange aftertaste! That just won't do!!
I often host dinner parties, when I plan a menu for a dinner I try to incorporate different cultures and food. How boring would it be to go your hosts home and have the same predictable menu each time!?
So...A few months ago I had a Thai dinner party and found this drink online, it is the perfect combination of sweet and spiced goodness.
Chai Iced Tea
8 black tea bags
2 cups ice
1 cup evaporated milk
4 tsp. cardamom
4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
Brew tea according to directions, cool. Place into glass pitcher; add evaporated milk, cardamom, cinnamon, and sugar. Stir to combine. Fill tall glasses with ice and pour chai tea over top until full. Sprinkle with cardamon and cinnamon.
* Chai tea also make a great milkshake, just add your favorite vanilla bean ice cream and blend until creamy!
