Baby It’s Cold Outside! Warm Up with a Chai Tea Latte
By Nicole Hopping December 5, 2013 on Baby It’s Cold Outside! Warm Up with a Chai Tea LatteNo Comments
Curling up near a crackling fire on a frosty winter day with a hot drink warming your hands is both a holiday pastime and, in some houses, a seasonal tradition. No ordinary drink will do though. The best ones are spiced and creamy, with the perfect hint of sweetness, and the folks at Calmer Sutra Tea have just the recipe. They’ve been perfecting their calm-inducing Fresh Chai for nearly ten years, and are certain it’s the perfect blend for holiday cheer.
Made using raw ginger, in lieu of dried ginger powder, and honey, this “wet-mix” chai balances fresh ingredients with the bold flavors of freshly ground Indian spices. Perfectly spiced in its own right, Fresh Chai is the ideal base for all your holiday drinks.
For a special treat this season, skip the dried, packaged chai tea bags and order aromatic Fresh Chai tea instead. Try it out in one of these traditional drink recipes and let us know what you think!
