I haven’t had stovetop chai tea in forever (see recipe in tea description)! I’ve been drinking steeped herbal blends which are good, but as you know, ain’t nothin’ like the real thing! This was spicy and creamy and sweet (honey). A dessert in itself (and toast with butter and orange marmalade was a not so shabby accompaniment!). Truly one of my favorite treats in the world.
The only problem is that I had it at 9pm and was up half the night. I’m not sure how many times I have to do this to myself before I stop drinking caffeine after 5 when I know better! But…but…it’s the most delicious, and it was Saturday night, and.. but.. ;)
Prepared stovetop. A delicious end to a meal of curried shrimp with rice. I never fail to be amazed at just how good stovetop chai with milk tastes :) Creamy, spicy, comforting yet energizing. Honey takes it over the edge – a magic elixir!
I had a huge Indian lunch with my coworkers, and was too stuffed for a proper dinner! All I kept dreaming of was coming home to a nice sit down on the sofa with a huge mug of chai, and that is exactly what I did!
I prepared it with my favorite stovetop method, which makes for a creamy, moderately spiced, and flavorful cup. A little honey makes it all the better. One of my favorite treats in the world! I was up til midnight because of the caffeine, but it was worth it!
One of my favorite pairings: a chilly night and a good cup of stovetop chai :)
