There is nothing like a chai latte while watching the sunrise. The pups and I love to sit on the porch in our favorite blanket and watch the sunrise and this is my favorite drink for this event.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 Tsp whole black peppercorn
  • 10 whole cloves
  • 6 green cardamom pods (cracked)
  • 4 C of water
  • 1 (2 inch) piece of fresh ginger (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 C sweater of your choice
  • 2 Tbsp lose leaf black or 6 black tea bags
  • 3 C milk of choice

What to do:

  1. Toast the spices. Place cinnamon, peppercorns, cloves, and cardamom in a small saucepan over medium heat shaking the pot occasionally until fragrant (3-4 minutes)
  2. Add water and ginger to the saucepan and bring to a simmer (5 minutes of simmer)
  3. Remove from hear and add tea (loose-leaf or tea bags) and cover letting it steep for 10 minutes
  4. While the tea is still warm add the sweetener of your choice stir until combined, and dissolved
  5. Stain your tea in your teapot and discard the spices and tea leaves
  6. Heat milk on saucepan on low hear and then froth the milk of your choice

I hope you enjoy!
