Just tried this using the steam wand method but without sugar or any other sweetener.
Just doesn’t work
what is the steam wand method?
Yeah, ditto Chris’ comment. Although I never add sweetener to chais.
I put this chai, which is my own recipe if you check it out, in about a third the normal amount of water and then let it steep.
Then I put the liquor, COLD milk and sugar in a frothing jug and steam it on the steam wand of an espresso machine.
Pour it into a cup, latte style and sprinkle with powdered cardamon, cinnamon and sugar.
@Robert, I can’t reach my stove so I do it that way too- except I microwave the mixture… unfortunately I’m very good at scortching the milk and making a huge mess…
The microwave is the natural enemy of a good cup of tea.
Microwaves were entirley invented for warming scones to have with one’s tea, and any other use is the work of the devil.
Yeah well, when you’re in a wheelchair in a home that isn’t built for one sometimes you have to make due. It’s better than having no chai at all IMO. And unfortunately mom refuses to let me use a hot plate so that’ll have to wait til I move out.
I once bought a house that had been built for someone in a wheelchair, and it taught me a fair bit.
Everything was really low, so for example, everytime i missed a light switch by hitting the wall above it, it reminded me that I was fortunate.
A microwave is a matter of choice for me, but is clearly it is essential for you and I should not be so flippant.
And I’m not average height either. I’m only 3 ft 8… which is one of the reasons I don’t walk w/ leg braces and a walker. Since I’m so short I feel safer in a chair. Especially in the winter.
