Twinings Spicy Chai
The weather is most definitely cooler now, so when the evenings are dark and it's a little chilly at home there is nothing better than a comforting hot drink to snuggle up with to watch your favourite TV show. I love the taste of chai, I really enjoy the soft heat of the spices and the smell that makes me think of Christmas. I picked up a pack of Twinings spicy chai teabags and have been taking a couple to work with me because they come individually wrapped but I wanted to try making a cup of chai latte with them. I wasn't sure how it would turn out as they aren't that strong when made with water, even when left to brew for 4 minutes so I guessed it would need a little help with some extra ingredients.
I heated some soy milk up in the microwave whilst I brewed the teabag in quarter a cup of water and then topped it up with soy milk. I added in an extra dash of cinnamon and ground ginger to enhance the flavour a bit more.
I would have liked it to have more flavour so I think I'm going to try making my own chai latte syrup to add to hot milk to keep me going through the winter, but if you're too low maintainance to do that then brewing the hell out of a chai teabag and adding to hot milk should do the trick.
