Loves it!!!

I really took the time on Saturday evening to brew this correctly. The whole process took about 30 or so minutes. I had about 1 cup of cream that I added to the mix that made it superb! Diets aside, adding the rich cream was sooo good. The whole house smelled spicy and fall-y. After my husband’s initial, “you’re going to make me drink that, aren’t you?” he decided that he loved it. (I didn’t tell him it had coconut in it.)

On Sunday morning I awoke to the Thai Chai smell in the house again. I thought it might still be from the night before, but my husband crept into the bedroom with a breakfast tray of eggs in a pita pocket, a piece of homemade baklava, and the last rose from our garden. Oh yeah, and a huge steaming cup of Thai Chai for the both of us! He had snuck out of bed to start making the tea! He admitted that it was better with the cream added (he just used skim milk), but it tasted great to me because of all the thought he put into it.

As we lounged in bed eating breakfast and drinking our tea, he said to me, “Hey babe, I won’t give you a hard time if you order a much bigger bag of this stuff.” Yea!!! No more eye-rolling when he sees my tea orders!

That is just awesome in so many ways, not to mention jealousy inducing. When you got to the part about the baklava I may or may not have actually started salivating.

The fact that I think that chai tea is SO much better with milk that’s got fat content [I usually make it with whole, MAYBE 2% – never tried it with cream which sounds absolutely sinful] is exactly why I don’t drink it every day. But in that way it’s also a real treat when I do get a cup.

I don’t have a husband who makes me melt, but I do think I’ll be rewarding myself with a mug of chai at the end of the week. I’ll take what I can get.

Anything that gets the hubby on the tea-wagon is a definite win!

Awww! Please help me train mine. He won’t even make my coffee, which is much simpler than tea. That is, he won’t sweeten and half & half it.

Please tell me about your Chai tea making process. I’ve only recently began trying to make it with milk on stove top and I don’t have a good process down yet.

Aww, that’s so cute. Sounds like you’ve got quite a good catch. ;)

I’ve been wanting to do a traditional-style chai with this tea aswell, but I always forget or don’t have the time.

Thanks everyone…he is a good catch!

Here’s my traditional method: bring 2 cups water to a low boil. Add two table spoons of sugar. I like to use brown sugar with my chai teas. Stir in until sugar is totally dissolved. Add two heaping spoons of your chai…a little more or less depending on your tastes. Let everything boil for about 10 minutes…this cracks open all of the pods and spices. Add 2 cups of milk. Whole milk is ideal. I used a cup of skim milk and a cup of cream in my review above. Delish! But DO try to use a milk with fat in it. Adding the milk with halt the boiling process for a few minutes. Let the mix all start to boil again. Watch your milk and stir stir stir! I let mine all boil together for about 5 minutes. Take it off the heat and let it sit for about 10 minutes and you are good to go enjoy a fab cup. This makes about 2-3 average mugs.

Enjoy!
