It’s been a LONG week. I thought I would reward myself with something and about the time I was trying to figure out what my reward would be my son comes in and request chai. I have only made some chai’s using coffeemate chai creamer and I’m out right now so I dug into my GM sampler and pulled this one out.

I made it according to Takgoti’s chai recipe and it turned out wonderful and luckily it made enough to give him a huge mug and me a dainty cup. I am not usually really crazy over chai’s but I might have to purchase this one for those days when I need a chai. See picture here http://www.flickr.com/photos/48612840@N07/4546576793/

I do not have really any other chai’s besides one or two experiences to compare this one to but it was yummy so it’s going to get a high rating.

Thanks Takgoti for the recipe! :)

Thanks you so much! I am not a very good photographer but I do try to make restaurant looking drinks (for my teen) so I don’t have to spend the extra money on *bucks.;)

A latte, in short, is a double shot of espresso topped with steamed, i.e. not frothed, milk. It is related to the French café au lait, the Spanish café con leche, and the German Milchkaffee. It’s coffee milk. Delicious. Simple, and a great breakfast treat.

A cappuccino is a different beast. The cappuccino is a study in thirds. You have one third espresso, one third steamed milk, and finally one third foamed milk. When you get your drink it should have a nice “cap” of foam. The liquid portion of the drink should taste stronger than a latte, but remain evenly balanced.
