I’ve been in search of the perfect at-home chai recipe for years now. I was a little nervous to make this for Friendsgiving, as I still feel like I’m always tweaking the spices. But I think I have finally found the perfect recipe. And I have witnesses! You can always adjust the spice (or sweetness) level to fit your palette.
Needed: 2 bags black tea (any kind), 1/2 teaspoon cardamom, 1/2 teaspoon allspice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cloves, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 5 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk.
Fill a tea pot with 5-6 cups water. Add the tea bags and bring to a boil. Stir in the spices and turn the heat down to low.
When you are ready to serve add 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk to each cup. Pour in the hot tea and stir to dissolve the milk. Serve with a cinnamon stick! xo. Elsie
