The perfect drink for a chilly winter afternoon
I still can't get used to the fact that I live in a country where everything is upside down, including seasons. While I read blogs of my friends enjoying hot summer afternoons, margaritas and splashing in the pool, I am burning candles that smell like Christmas and pull out my super soft, red winter blanket while watching tv.
Today I went to one of the best tea shops on the planet earth T2 and tried one of their chai teas. I walked out with a whole set for making it myself at home.
It is perfection in a cup! Here is how you can also indulge:
Buy loose leaf chai tea
Boil about a cup of water and drop in the tea (don't ask me how much, use your best judgement)
Add a cup of vanilla flavoured soy milk
Let it simmer for a little while
Add honey to taste
Strain it, get comfortable on your couch, close your eyes, smell the spices and enjoy it!
