Back logging, btws…
I wasn’t feeling to perky this afternoon, thanks to be a lady, and wanted something I knew would cheer me right back up. So I turned on some old Better off Ted episodes and brewed up a yummy cuppa Thai Chai. This time I happened to have coconut milk in my fridge from making coconut rice (which is delicious), so I added a bit in. Oh, I felt loads better afterward.
This time round, I picked up on way more lemongrass even with the added coconut. Also, the coconut milk messed with the texture a bit, not in a unpleasant way but not pleasing either. However, throughly recommend adding a bit of coconut milk to it and pretty much anything.
Has anyone else tried brewing a chai in coffee? I always order a dirty chai when I’m out, or am I crossing a line?

I ALWAYS order a dirty chai too! 12oz. double shot double pump mocha, double pump caramel, no water. and not the concentrate either, real tea bags! If you don’t want something with a milky texture, just brew coffee with tea instead of plain water (2.25 g for every cup you’re making). It makes a wonderful spiced coffee w/ the health benefits of tea. I was actually going to make myself a dirty chia right now. Adagio’s Chocolate Chia steeped in 3oz 2x strength coffee then adding 3oz milk. I might even add mocha hazelnut sprinkles:)

Yum! I’ve never added mocha or caramel but I’m not really a sweets person. Now I really want to try coffee + chocolate chai. I have so much to do today and this will definitely keep me while being awesomely tasty!

If you don’t want it overly sweet, use shaved 100% dark chocolate so the caramel doesn’t make it too sweet.
