I haven’t been drinking much tea in the evenings. I was so overheated each day on my walk home from the train that hot tea was the furthest thing from my mind — even after I cooled off in the air conditioning! Now that the weather has cooled and I’ve been having breezy, pleasant walks home, the craving for evening tea has returned.
I had made an apple cake (http://notwithoutsalt.com/2012/10/21/chopped-apple-cake/ – easy and delicious, but I bet it would be just as good with only 1/2 c oil and 1/2 c sugar and half the salt) and thought this chai would be lovely with it — it was :) Very cinnamon-y and sweet-spicy. Flavorful enough to eat with cake. Wonderful with a little honey and milk. In fact, I have every intention to repeat this same exact combination this evening. Perfect.
